Master Chats: A Series for Advanced Learning

master chats graphic“The Science of Hope: Global and Local Research to End Alzheimer’s Disease”

Presented by Tom Hlavacek, ’81, Former Executive Director, Alzheimer’s Association of Southeastern Wisconsin, and Dr. Karyn Frick, UWM Professor of Psychology.

As our society ages, more and more people become concerned about Alzheimer’s disease. A global search is underway to find the cause of the disease and possible treatments. Learn about the global effort to detect Alzheimer’s disease before symptoms develop, and interventions that may delay or possibly prevent the disease completely. Local efforts to better understand why Alzheimer’s disease disproportionately affects women will also be discussed.

UWM’s Master Chats feature distinguished professors and alumni speakers presenting on a range of engaging topics. Sponsored by the UWMAA Emeritus Board, Presidents’ Circle, and UWM Libraries.

Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
