The Miami Area Geriatric Education Center will provide a free educational session via live webcast on risk reduction strategies, for health care professionals, caregivers assisting people with Alzheimer’s Disease, and Related Dementias before, during, and after a hurricane.

Dr. Christensen will provide an overview of research on long-term care during hurricanes, and cover Federal and state (Florida) regulations, with special attention to the needs of people with ADRD.
