We are pleased to announce that the Dr. Lawrence Albert Memorial Webinar Series on Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) is now available on demand for you to review, share with colleagues and use as a resource with patients and families. There is no cost for viewing these webinars thanks to a generous sponsorship by Kathi and Peter Arnow, the family of Dr. Lawrence Albert, who battled PPA until 2011.
PPA is a clinical dementia syndrome caused by degeneration of nerve cells that control language. In most individuals with PPA, the disease that causes it is a form of frontotemporal degeneration; in about 30-40%, it is the neuropathology of Alzheimer's disease.
