Location: Emerald Heights Retirement Community, Redmond, WA

Speakers:    Christina Troutner, MS, RDN - "Prevention Nutrition for Alzheimer's Disease" 

This talk will examine the role lifestyle, and in particular diet and nutrition, plays in AD prevention. Key nutrients that have been implicated in neurological health as well as dietary interventions that may delay the onset or slow the progression of AD will be reviewed. AD pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria and risk factors, including the role of APOE gene variants in determining risk and their interactions with diet, will also be discussed.

Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD - "Medical Update on Alzheimer's Disease: Prevention & Palliation"

This presentation will explore the changing trends and demographics of normal versus pathological aging. Within this, the emphasis will be on early and appropriate detection in the context of multiple comorbidities. This will include commonly used procedures and tools for screening and diagnosis as well as best practices for communication and collaboration across multiple systems, including families and medical professionals.  The presentation will also emphasize updates on prevention techniques and early stage treatment, including non-pharmaceutical lifestyle interventions around exercise, diet, cognitive stimulation and enhancing community/social support networks.
