The 6th Annual Penn Memory Center Thank You Breakfast drew a packed crowd to the Inn at Penn’s Woodlands Ballroom on October 20, 2012. The theme of the annual invitation-only breakfast is to thank research participants for their contribution to Penn’s Alzheimer’s disease research.
Over 200 research participants along with their family members and guests gathered to enjoy eggs, bacon, fruit and pastries before attending presentations on the latest updates in Alzheimer’s disease and the results of Alzheimer’s disease research done at the Penn Memory Center.
Doctors John Trojanowski, Steven E. Arnold, David Wolk, Jason Karlawish, and Penn Memory Center Associate Director for Clinical and Research Operations Felicia Greenfield each presented the latest results from their research studies as well as updates on Penn Memory Center programs and upcoming research opportunities. The presentations concluded with an open question and answer session. Guests’ questions ranged from how biomarker results are used in clinical practice to the current and future state of Alzheimer’s disease research.
Guests’ evaluations were overwhelmingly positive. Comments from the evaluations included:
“I find this program great. It gives me some hope, and learning about the disease is very informative. Thank you for all you do.”
“This is a much appreciated event in recognition of the efforts of those of us who want to help.”
“Your research is wonderful and your sharing it like this is unbelievably generous and much appreciated.”
