Harborside Hotel and Marina, Bar Harbor, Maine

This year's conference is headlined by Peter J. Whitehouse, MD, PhD,  Professor of Neurology, Case Western Reserve & Staff Neurologist, Brain Health and Memory Center and co-author of The Myth of Alzheimer's: What You Aren't Being Told About Today's Most Dreaded Diagnosis.

Hear from Dr. Whitehouse as he invites to think deeply about dementia to enhance our collective wisdom about aging, science, brains/mind, community and our very humanity. He notes that "brain health is a concept that is proving useful to re-frame our thinking, especially the importance of depth (finding purpose) and breadth (finding a community)."
