Our Third Annual FTD Educational Seminar was a Success!
The FTD seminar sponsored by the CT FTD Foundation and hosted by the River House Adult Day Center in Greenwich was held on November 17th. Thirty five health care professionals, including some family caregivers, attended the event and there were more on the waiting list once registration was closed.
The featured speakers were Dr. Edward (Ted) Huey, who specializes in FTD at Columbia University Medical Center and Jill Goldman, MS, MPhil, CGC, Senior Staff Associate and Genetic Counselor at Columbia University Medical Center. Their presentation “Diagnosing Frontotemporal Degeneration, the Dementia No One Knows About” described FTD, its symptoms and behaviors, how the disease differs from Alzheimer’s and the role genetics play in diagnosis and assessing hereditary risk within a family.
