The McGinty Conference is Oregon’s leading research and education event that highlights Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Now in its 18th year, the McGinty Conference honors Dr. Dean McGinty, a Portland geriatrician, an early advocate for those living with dementia and a pioneer in the Alzheimer’s family-support movement.
Since Dr. McGinty’s death in 1995, the Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter has convened experts at the McGinty Conference to lead interactive sessions that focus on the many issues related to Alzheimer’s.
The McGinty Conference is geared toward individuals personally and/or professionally affected by this devastating disease. This year’s conference will be held Nov. 10 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. More than 600 participants are expected.
