The Wien Center for Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders at Mount Sinai Medical Center Miami Beach, since its inception in 1986, has provided clinical care in the form of diagnosis, comprehensive neurological, psychiatric, social service and outreach services to patients and their caregivers in South Florida, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The center has been in the forefront of providing education about memory disorders to professionals and the community at large. The MCI Symposium is a vehicle for this learning process, not only for the center and for the residents of South Florida, but also for the many individuals who travel to Miami Beach to attend these events each year.
1Florida Alzheimer's Disease & Research Center, funded by the National Institute on Aging, creates the infrastructure that supports research and educational activities as well as clinical care for patients with AD and other dementias in Florida. Nearly one in eight of the 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer's Disease resides in Florida. The 1Florida ADRC coalesces research efforts of the Wien Memory Disorder Center at Mount Sinai Medical Center Miami and the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville. These efforts capitalize on the clinic population in the Wien Center that is majority Hispanic, the expansive research capabilities at UF, and the infrastructure for translational research provided by the NIH funded UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
