The 15th annual Alzheimer's Association Research Update will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the University Center ballroom on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University.
Tuition is $10 in advance and $15 at the door, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. Participants will learn more about a drug, memantine, recently approved by the FDA for mid- to late-stage treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
A leading researcher will discuss other advances and findings in the battle against the disease.
Hospitality rooms will be available for persons with memory loss so that caregivers can attend the update.
