Making medical decisions when there is uncertainty is challenging for patients, caregivers, and the care team. This is especially true for patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Insights from the behavioral sciences may help doctors detect dementia earlier and develop more insightful care plans.
Join us on September 17, 10-11 AM Pacific, for a discussion about how the tools of behavioral sciences can be leveraged for better dementia care. Julie Zissimopoulos, Center for Advancing Sociodemographic and Economic Study of Alzheimer’s Disease (CeASES-ADRD), will moderate the discussion with Lisa Walke, chief of the division of geriatric medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine, and Joanna Lee Hart, assistant professor of medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine. This webinar is hosted by the USC Resource Center for Minority Aging Research and the Center for Advancing Sociodemographic and Economic Study of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias, both housed at the USC Schaeffer Center.
