ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

An event for professional and family caregivers, the McGinty Memorial Conference on Alzheimer's disease honors Dean McGinty, MD, a Portland geriatrician, an early advocate for the special needs of those living with dementia and a pioneer in the Alzheimer's family support movement.

Since Dr. McGinty's death in 1995, the Alzheimer's Association Oregon & SW Washington Chapter has honored him with an educational conference dedicated to the principles he practiced throughout his career: providing high-quality, compassionate, family-centered care.

The conference's interactive sessions, motivating speakers and innovative ideas will focus on the many facets of Alzheimer's disease, as well as caregiving, research, communication, life-enhancing activities and person-centered care.
