PAST EVENTS

June 20, 2016: The Longest Day at The Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging

The Alzheimer’s Association created The Longest Day as an initiative to raise funds and awareness about the impact of Alzheimer’s and related dementias for families.  The Martinos Center (149 13th Street, Charlestown, MA) is at the epicenter of Boston’s research community. In honor of the initiative, the Martinos Center will be hosting free scans for researchers, an informational fair, presentations and tours of the facility.  I will be there with a table for the FTD Unit and I know that the Alzheimer’s Association will be there as well.  Anyone is welcome to attend this free event.
