Join us at the Rivers Casino for our first in-person event since 2020! We are excited to network and catch up with members and guests, as we dine over a debate on lecanemab. The safety, efficacy and direct and indirect cost of novel monoclonal antibody therapies are debated in clinical practice. This pro-con style debate will explore these practices.

The interprofessional healthcare team will be empowered to help patients better explore therapeutic options that are best fit for them and their goals of care. Through this session, interprofessional attendees will have the opportunity to explore diverse aspects of monoclonal antibody therapy for use in major neurocognitive disorders including dosing, imaging, monitoring, and evaluation of safety and efficacy. Attendees will be able to apply the newly learned clinical knowledge to the patients they see at the bedside.

We will also honor the 2023 Geriatric Teacher of the Year Awardees.

Your registration includes the program, dinner, and appetizers. If you wish to participate in beverages throughout the night, please bring a credit card or cash to enjoy the bar.
