The Alzheimer’s Association 30th Annual Wisconsin Network Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias will take place in the Wisconsin Dells on May 1-3, 2016. It is one of the largest educational forums in the United States dedicated to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
On May 2, Will I Be Next? will present a short work-in-progress screening and workshop to solicit insights and feedback. Producer Therese Barry-Tanner and Alzheimer’s nurse/sound person Amy Kruep will lead a group discussion. Karen McElwee Lloyd, one of the film’s main characters, will be available to discuss her experience in the WRAP study and in the film. The feedback will be utilized in the continued production and editing of Will I Be Next?.
In addition to the pre-conference seminars and keynote speakers, the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Conference offers over 40 workshops at the conference. Topics cover a range of issues related to both patients and caregivers, including: assistive devices, bathing, creative engagement, denial, depression, safety, and spirituality.
