Dementia Symposium

7:30 am - 5:00 pm

On behalf of William McMullen, Ph.D., SFNS President, Steven J. Holtz, MD, SFNS Director of CME and Eric Collins,MD, Dementia Symposium Chair, due to the COVID-19 resurgence prompting an abundance of caution, great consideration for the safety of our attendees and respecting the limited institutional in-person availability of many of our distinguished speakers, we have decided to hold the 2021 Dementia Symposium as a virtual event. While we were excited to meet in-person and return to some semblance of normalcy, we are not quite there yet.

We hope to see you online!
