OSA Press Conference

March 13, 2024


The Arnold School of Public Health, Office for the Study of Aging, and the College of Social Work are partnering for a two-day event that will promote collaborative and statewide research, programming, and partnerships in aging and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

A press conference with community and state agency partners will be held to highlight the 35th annual report of the South Carolina Alzheimer’s Disease Registry – the oldest and most comprehensive registry in the United States.

The second event will be a lecture sponsored by the Arnold School of Public Health and a National Institute on Aging-funded conference grant (5R13AG074603-03). The lecture will focus on the state of the science on Alzheimer’s disease and the impact of registry data on the state, communities, and individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
