Target Audience

The Healthcare Education Project will target the primary care practitioner population for education on diagnosis and referral of dementia patients. With this project, the Alzheimer’s Association plans on providing education to 150 primary care practitioners throughout Iowa. Primary care practitioners will include family physicians, physician assistants, and advanced registered nurse practitioners. According to America’s Health Rankings, 94.2% of older adults in Iowa report having a dedicated health care provider. By educating these providers, Iowans experiencing cognitive impairment will benefit from early diagnosis and appropriate services and support. 


The purpose of this CME activity is to educate physicians on the diagnosis and treatment of dementia. This CME activity is also designed as a strategy to increase healthcare provider referrals to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Special thank you to the Pedretti Charitable Foundation and the Iowa Department on Aging for providing funding.
