Dementia Science & The Law
This timely program will address the fragility of the human brain and how and by whom capacity determinations are made for and/or on behalf of the millions of adult Americans who have diminished mental capacity, including the estimated five million Americans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s diseases.  Special emphasis will be placed on the tensions between lawyers and healthcare professionals as to how, where, and by whom such capacity determinations should be made.
