ANCDS is proud to announce the 2016 Scientific and Business Meeting on November 16th, in Philadelphia, PA.  Our theme for this year is Genetics, Ethics, and Management of Cognitive Communicative Disorders in Neurodegenerative Diseases.  The Education and Standards Committee has put together an expert group of individuals to present thought-provoking and challenging insights that will appeal to clinicians and researchers alike.  Our invited speakers will provide updates on neural bases and genetic variants underpinning neurodegenerative diseases, explain research-based intervention techniques for select patients with communication disorders, and discuss ethical and legal considerations.  The goal is to promote ongoing discussions and evidence-based practice related to improving the care and quality of life of patients with neurodegenerative diseases.  We are delighted to welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love and look forward to seeing you at the 2016 ANCDS Scientific and Business Meeting.
