REBEKAH WILSON - Excellent FTD Presentation
"Rebekah Wilson did a presentation at the CT Alzheimer’s Dementia Conference this past week, called “Frontotemporal Dementia; Behavioral Strategies”.
She talked about the differences between FTD and other forms of dementia, described the subtypes of FTD, discussed common behavioral expressions in FTD and strategies for managing behaviors.
As a sign of the interest in FTD, the room was overflowing, I took my time getting to the room and ended up sitting in the hallway looking in via the doorway. I would estimate there were 75+ attendees... She did a great job!"
