Training Program Description

The Department of Epidemiology at the University of Florida (UF) aims to raise awareness regarding Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and to increase screening for cognitive impairment among older adults. We are focusing attention on providing additional medical education to healthcare professionals through a free, one-hour continuing medical education (CME) course. You are invited to join our online CME training at no cost to you. Through this CME, cognitive health experts from UF provide the latest information on the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of mild cognitive impairment and dementia, including referral to specialty care. Additionally, the training is available to any interested individuals, whether they are a clinician or not.
