Brain Health Experts Collaborate at Silverado Conference
CALA, October 1, 2014 - The image of the solitary genius is an attractive one—a scientist like Albert Einstein, alone in a dusty office, working feverishly to solve a problem or create something new. But evidence shows that even Einstein relied on others from time to time. It is the spirit of collaboration that leads to innovation because working with others exposes you to new ways of thinking about a problem. Or, as scientist, Bill Nye, puts it:
Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.
Each of the 50 attendees is a medical director affiliated with a Silverado memory care community or hospice office. Silverado, with 18 years of dedicated expertise in memory care, hosts the annual event to facilitate the exchange of ideas among this world-class team. Each medical director is invited to work with Silverado because of their passion for developing innovative approaches to care for those with memory loss. From award-winning physicians to researchers at the nation’s top universities, these experts add tremendous value to society’s understanding of brain health.
“It’s always exciting for us at Silverado to bring together the company’s top medical minds from throughout the country. This includes national and international leaders in neuroscience with an expertise in dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other memory impairing diseases, as well as physicians managing hospice care,” shares Silverado President and CEO Loren Shook. “The collective knowledge of this group over the years has led to numerous advancements in the care of those with memory impairments.”
