This year Dr. Nachman-Mangot attended the 2014 research and Care Alzheimer's conference with her colleagues (She is sitting with Maggie Sullivan, Support Group Facilitator of the Delaware Valley Alzheimer's Association Chapter). She participated in the workshop run by Gary Glazner, founder and executive Director of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project. She found the workshop packed with techniques to help in creative ways to communicate with her patients while delivering her dentistry which will help facilitate a different type of management of her patient population than previously used. This workshop helps build communication skills and helps increase the ability to connect with people living with memory loss. Dr. Nachman-Mangot can't wait to implement this creative communication within her dental practice management skills. Sent from my iPhone
