Education

The Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center (MADC) is committed to enhancing dementia awareness through collaborative education and outreach efforts. To support this commitment, we have established partnerships with several U-M departments and institutions, in addition to community organizations, such as the Alzheimer’s Association. Our partnerships enable us to co-sponsor, support and promote programs that offer a new way of learning and practicing coping strategies for individuals experiencing memory loss and for care partners. Please check out our events calendar for a listing of educational and support programs offered by the MADC, U-M Geriatrics Center, U-M Silver Club programs, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
