The ADC now offers Web-Based lectures on dementia diagnosis and care. These Web-Based lectures are Microsoft Powerpoint Presentations and include audio with each slide of the lecture.

You MUST use Internet Explorer and have Microsoft Media Player to view these lectures,

If you do not have speakers, you will be able to view the slide presentation but not listen to the audio lecture.

When you click on a presentation below, the PowerPoint presentation will open automatically in your browser. (If it does not open, you can open the presentation manually in your browser by clicking on the "replay broadcast" link.) Audio is streaming and will accompany each slide. The slides will advance automatically along with the sound.

The lecture can be replayed but cannot be reversed or advanced. However, the audio can be paused and previous slides can be seen or all the slides can be viewed by using the "view previous slide" option at the top of the browser.
