The unique EBM Debates™ program has been developed based on an identified need for an open dialog among physicians involved in Alzheimer's disease research and disease management to understand what we know and what we must still document to make informed decisions. "The program will provide the opportunity to gain insights into what treating physicians think about the level of evidence available on these topics and provide a forum for open and honest commentary," said Dr. Sabbagh. "This will benefit all involved in the field of Alzheimer's by combining thought leader responses with feedback from the broad field of treating physicians."

The distinguished panel of debaters included: Dr. Liana Apostolova, Associate
