A year in review
By: Terri Schmitt, Executive Director
Nothing brings reflection for me like the end of the year. It is a time to laugh, cry, embrace the best, and look for opportunities to be better. In reflection, the last 12 months at NPACE have been incredible in many ways. Some of my most fond memories of this past year include

Alzheimer’s Dementia: The Hippo in the Room
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. The etiology is unknown and there is no known cure for this devastating progressive neurodegenerative disease. The hippocampus is affected and prevents the patient from forming new memories.
Parkinson’s Back to the Future
Parkinson’s Disease is a common neurologic disorder. Early recognition and treatment are key to slowing the progressive disability that occurs as a result of decreased dopamine. Primary care providers are key to recognizing signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease early.

In 1965, the role of the NP was created by Loretta Ford. In this fledgling role, she functioned as a pediatric NP in collaboration with a pediatrician.
