The Education and Information Transfer Core (EITC), directed by Margaret Sewell, PhD and Judith Neugroschl, MD, provides educational programming about Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, treatment, management, and research advances and training. This is accomplished through lecture series for physicians and other health care professionals in training as well as community lectures, workshops, the Memory Enhancement Program, and CME programs.
We perform outreach, in both English and Spanish, through the ADRC newsletter, joint publications with the New York Consortium for Alzheimer Research and Education (NYCARE) (the collaboration of the Education Cores of New York City’s Alzheimer’s Disease Centers and the New York City Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association) for the Alzheimer’s Association Newsletter, brochures, lectures, workshops, conferences, and health fairs. The ongoing collaboration with the Mount Sinai’s Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center further allows the Core to provide educational programming and outreach specifically targeted to the large Hispanic community the ADRC serves.
If you would like more information about our lecture series, would like to receive our newsletter, or need more information about community resources for those with AD, contact Dr. Sewell at (212) 241-0188 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
