Stearns Benton Medical Society, with support from the Central MN Council on Aging and from CentraCare Health is planning for a another, bigger, day-long Central Minnesota Dementia Summit, 2018 conference in St. Cloud, MN on March 22, 2018. A planning committee has a fully packed meeting agenda aimed at getting primary care clinicians to do full-spectrum dementia care in their office practice. Dr. Troy Payne will talk about sleep disorders, including sleep apnea and how they relate to added dementia risk. Dr. Moustapha Atoui of Cardiology will discuss cardiovascular risk factors with respect to dementia risk. Dr. Leslie Hartman of Radiology has a great presentation on imaging guidelines and dementia care. Dr. Terry Barclay will be presenting up to date recommendations for primary care dementia evaluation and management, and Michele Barclay will be presenting informational and management updates for the many dementia services providers and organizational leaders we have in our area.
Several dementia-related services information booths will be staffed with dementia resource professionals similar to last Spring’s Dementia Summit, 2017. Although the conference will be geared toward dementia providers and professionals, all interested members of the community will be welcome to attend. The Summit will be held at the St. Cloud River’s Edge Convention Center, March 22, 2018 from 7:45 AM to 5:00 PM and has been approved for up to 7 hours of physician CME credit.
