This workshop sounds SO GOOD & NECESSARY! I live halfway across the country so cant attend. Do you know if they will hav copies of the presentations, and even better yet, will they b videotaping the workshop?  

There are alot of GREAT conferences/workshops all over the U.S., but many times they are so far away and many people have a difficult time traveling. It would b SO BENEFICIAL if these presentations could b videotaped so that they could b posted later on the internet, specifically on Support Group pages!  There is SO MUCH information out there, but the smaller cities and towns don't get the advantages of havimg conferences...

I would appreciate you checking into this, as i emailed the organizer of a state conference where i live to see about handouts from the conference. They were more than happy to accommodate that, so hoping ur conference will hav copies of sessions, or videotape for further distribution.  

We need to spread the information so that people affected by dementia in one way or another, can benefit with new knowledge about this incedious disease!

Vik, I doubt that the program will be taped.  It is being presented by our local chapter.  You might contact your local chapter to see if they will present such a program.  Unfortunately, I find that they are not well publicized.

Our local chapter is pretty scarce as i live in a small town. Going to a state conference next week---cant wait!  Enjoy urs!!!!  In some ways, in person is better than online.

P.S.  Are you the one with personal blog? I was on it one day but cant find it now---kinda like my keys and tv remote...
