Health Care Professionals
One of the major goals of the CEAD of WNY is to provide education and training to health care providers and students in health care professions to promote the benefits of early diagnosis and treatment of individuals with dementia/Alzheimer's disease, utilization of available treatments and enrollment in clinical trials.
This grant specifically helps to educate future health care professionals in medical school about dementia and geriatrics. This is increasingly important as the patient population ages, given WNY's proportion of older adults, which at 16.7% is higher than both the 14.4% average statewide and the 13% national average.
