Alzheimer's Disease is the Focus of TBSI Annual Neuroscience Symposium
Date:8/3/2009

r of this year's symposium. "By moving the session to the evening and having several short sessions on Alzheimer's topics, we believe more residents will make a point to attend - and we really have some exceptional presentations on Alzheimer's awareness, prevention and caregiver support."

The purpose of the TBSI Neuroscience Symposium is to showcase current research and to promote understanding of a variety of nervous system disorders. TBSI was founded under the concept of bringing together top-level clinical care with current neuroscience research to provide the best possible treatment to patients with neurological disorders or injuries. "The symposium is an ideal way to share some of the latest information on Alzheimer's Disease research with the public as well as provide continuing education for clinical staff," said Dr. Toussaint.
