Understanding Frontotemporal Dementia Spectrum Disorders
The most common dementia for those under 60?
It may not be Alzheimer’s.
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to a cluster of disorders. The symptoms are different from Alzheimer’s, typically strike at a younger age, and are far less known in the general and medical community.
Join us for a special opportunity to hear from an expert in FTD research. Topics covered include:
- Types of Frontotemporal Dementia, including Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA)
- Causes & Risk Factors
- Treatment and Research
An open Q & A session will follow the program.
