Our 3rd Annual Fall Symposium—Taking Control of Alzheimer’s Disease—was the best attended yet. Almost 500 people watched it live online and 180 gathered in Boston on Oct. 9 to hear leading researchers from the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Research Consortium discuss the latest research toward finding a cure. Sam Gandy, M.D., Ph.D., of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Chairman Rudy Tanzi, Ph.D., from Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital, led the discussion.
Earlier that day, Banker White’s award-winning documentary, “The Genius of Marian,” was shown. The film is an honest portrayal of the filmmaker’s mother in her struggles with Alzheimer’s and takes place over three years. On display at the symposium was “Living with Alzheimer’s,” four short documentary films by world-class filmmakers that were produced by David Shenk and created in partnership with Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, with funding from the MetLife Foundation.
