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 
  • Diagnosis 
  • Treatment and Research 

An open Q & A session will follow the program.

Dr. Seyed Ahmad Sajjadi, MD, PhD is a UCI Health Neurologist specializing in memory disorders and whose clinical interests include Alzheimer’s, Frontotemporal Dementia, and atypical forms of dementia. Dr. Sajjadi is also a researcher at UCI MIND and Assistant Professor of Neurology for the UC Irvine School of Medicine.
