2006 Open House Posters

November 2006 was National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, the centennial anniversary of the first Alzheimer's diagnosis in 1906, the 10 year anniversary of important FTD research, and the University of Utah Alzheimer's Center's first anniversary. On November 29th, we held an open-house to celebrate these events. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend!

The images below are posters that were presented at our open-house. Double-click on the thumbnails below to view a larger image.
