Daniel I. Kaufer Lecture Series “Diagnosis and Management of Dementia with Lewy Bodies”
June 1 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm EDT
“Diagnosis and Management of Dementia with Lewy Bodies”
The Dr. Daniel I. Kaufer Lecture Series is an educational program devoted to shaping future generations of dementia care professionals. Prior to his death, Dr. Kaufer donated a gift to the UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s to establish an endowed lecture series continuing his commitment to dementia care. The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center supports researchers in their pursuit of answers that will lead to improved diagnosis and care for patients while, at the same time, focusing on the program’s long-term goal — finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
The inaugural Dr. Daniel I. Kaufer Lecture will feature guest lecturer Bradley F. Boeve, MD, Mayo Clinic. Dr. Boeve’s clinical and research interests include normal aging, neurodegenerative disorders that cause cognitive impairment or dementia, neurogenetics, prion disorders, and neurological sleep disorders. Dr. Boeve will present “Diagnosis and Management of Dementia with Lewy Bodies”.
