The Alzheimer’s Project Adds CME Courses
Because of an inadequate number of neurologists, psychiatrists, and geriatricians serving an increasing population of seniors with cognitive decline, most dementias will be diagnosed and managed by primary care practitioners.
We are pleased to partner with Champions for Health (formerly the San Diego County Medical Society Foundation) to offer The Alzheimer’s Project, a complimentary on-demand CME series that trains primary care physicians and other healthcare practitioners on standardized screening, evaluation, and management of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. New courses are added to the series as topics are recommended by learners and experts.
Learn more and access the courses on our Alzheimer’s Project CME Series page.
