San Diego is home to some of the best and brightest minds tackling Alzheimer’s disease across the globe. On September 9, Alzheimer’s San Diego will bring those leading scientists, geneticists and physicians together for the annual Date with a Cure research forum. This event is free and open to the public, and will provide a rare opportunity to discuss Alzheimer’s and dementia with world-class experts working to find new treatments – and a cure – for this disease. 

The event starts with a local clinical trial expo at 9 AM. Fact: 80% of clinical trials fail because of a lack of participants. Clinical trials are a vital part of the search for a cure and treatment for Alzheimer’s. The expo will give you a chance to connect with representatives from Sharp Mesa Vista, Excell Research, Pacific Research Network and UCSD to find out about clinical trials going on in San Diego and what they entail. The research forum will follow at 10 AM.

***Free respite care will be available on site, provided by Home Instead Senior Care. Registration required. To request, call Alzheimer’s San Diego at 858.492.4400.
