Join the Knight Alzheimer Disease Research Center (Knight ADRC) at Noon on the 3rd Thursday of each month to explore a new topic related to aging, memory, older-adult health, and local research.  Listen, learn, and engage with local experts from Washington University School of Medicine. Each program features a 40-minute talk presented by a content expert followed by 20-minutes for discussion, questions and answers.

3rd Thursday talks are for everyone, including patients, care partners, long-term care professionals, medical professionals, research participants, and anyone who would like to learn more about topics related to memory changes and aging.  3rd Thursday programs are hosted virtually using Zoom—we hope people from all areas will join us.

  • Each session is offered on the 3rd Thursday of the month from Noon-1pm, unless otherwise noted.
  • There is no charge to register for or attend 3rd Thursday programs.
  • For questions or to suggest a speaker, please contact Jennifer at phillipsj@wustl.edu.
