DAYTON — The Alzheimer’s Association Miami Valley Chapter will host a roundtable for healthcare professionals to discuss resources available to improve accurate and timely diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

The free webinar, which will be held from 8-9 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, will feature information about the Association’s Project Echo, where physicians can present cases and get coaching from a multidisciplinary clinical team from around the country. The goal is to increase the number of people who receive affordable, high-quality care and support.

The session is open to any medical, social services or health care provider who supports the Miami Valley’s families facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
