On March 6, the Alzheimer’s Association hosted a kick-off reception for its 30th Annual Rita Hayworth Gala at Francesca’s on Taylor in Little Italy. Director of Science Initiatives Dean Hartley hosted an open forum with Carol Deyts and Emily Rogalski and discussed new scientific developments and Alzheimer’s research today. More than 50 guests sampled caprese skewers, risotto and pizza while asking questions. The 30th Annual Rita Hayworth gala will take place on May 13 at the Chicago Hilton, with proceeds going toward research to finding a cure for the disease.
