Please join us in the New Haven area for a Liberation Rosh Hashana Ritual 5779: A jewish new year ritual for All! Our work and ritual is guided by a longing for and dedication to Palestinian liberation, Black and Brown liberation, Indigenous sovereignty, Queer and Feminist principles and Intersectional perspectives. Rosh Hashana is a time for opening up to our deepest selves. A time of soul searching, reflection, and healing. Guided by the values of Teshuvah (repentance), Tefilla (prayer) and Tzedakah (justice) Rosh Hashana is the opening of the gates to the 10 days of awe during which we practice forgiveness to ourselves and others, and make intentions for the year ahead. The “days of awe” are completed on the 10th day with Yom Kippur where we acknowledge the ways in which we “missed the mark” over the past year and commit ourselves to our best selves in the year to come. In the words of Ahed Tamimi, the 17 year old Palestinian activist who was recently released from Israeli military prison, “there is a huge difference between Judaism and Zionism. Judaism is a religion. You know, it’s just like Islam. It’s just like Christianity. But Zionism, that’s the occupation. That’s the killing. That’s what closes checkpoints. That’s what detains innocent people. That’s all Zionism that’s causing this conflict with Palestinians." While Rosh Hashana has beautiful themes the reality is that over the past 70+ years of zionism and Israel’s colonization of Palestine, we have seen the loss of the power and integrity of this ritual. Our goal is to “uproot” jewish prayer and ritual from this violent legacy. We do this work by acknowledging the violent ways jewish practices are used to justify further violence in Palestine, while at the same time developomg new language and practices that center the voices and experiences of those most marginalized in our communities. We strive towards liberation. We are honored to be hosting the ritual at The Palestine Museum US in Woodbridge CT. The museum was opened in April 2018 and works to showcase the Palestinian experience, pre- and post-Nakbah, in Palestine and in the diaspora, and celebrate Palestinian cultural and artistic achievements across the globe. Their generosity of offering us a place to pray together is an inspiring sign of the commitment between people of justice to support one another. It is our hope that by holding this sacred space within The Palestine Museum we can bring further awareness to their project, raise funds for their work, and deepen connections and relationships across our between our communities.

 36th International Conference on Dentistry & Dental Marketing About Conference After the success of Dental Marketing-2017 in Las Vegas, Conference Series LLC Ltd invites all the participants across the globe to attend the 36th International Conference on Dentistry & Dental Marketing (Dental Marketing-2018) during October 24-25, 2018 in Boston, USA. The relative novel nature of the conference and its relevance to the current dental market makes this summit an event to look forward to for all individuals of the dental community. The theme of the Dental Marketing-2018 is “Dentistry meets Marketing”.  The 36th International Conference on Dentistry & Dental marketing will look to improve and build on the stepping stones of it predecessor and create a platform for discussion on dental practice management and marketing besides conventional dentistry.  The nature of the conference is crucial to its purpose as dentists who attend the conference can not only contribute and share their research but also learn about how marketing influences their practices and implement and modernize.   Session Tracks 1. Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology : Oral and maxillofacial pathology (also termed oral pathology, stomatognathic disease, dental disease, or mouth disease) refers to the diseases of the mouth ("oral cavity" or "stoma"), jaws ("maxillae" or "gnath") and related structures such as salivary glands, temporomandibular joints, facial muscles and perioral skin (the skin around the mouth). The mouth is an important organ with many different functions. It is also prone to a variety of medical and dental disorders. The specialty oral and maxillofacial pathology is concerned with diagnosis and study of the causes and effects of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial region. It is sometimes considered to be a specialty of dentistry and pathology. Sometimes the term head and neck pathology is used instead, but this might imply that the pathologist deals with otorhinolaryngologic disorders (i.e. ear, nose and throat) in addition to maxillofacial disorders. In this role there is some overlap between the expertise of head and neck pathologists and that of endocrine pathologists.   2. Dentistry: Dentistry is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular and other supporting structures. Dentistry is often also understood to subsume the now largely defunct medical specialty of stomatology (the study of the mouth and its disorders and diseases) for which reason the two terms are used interchangeably in certain regions. 3. Dental Marketing : Marketing is key to the success of any business and dental practices are no exception. For a dental practice to grow, a single dentist should be seeing 24-50 new patients per month. And in order to attract new dental patients, a practice must offer a competitive product at competitive pricing, along with convenient quality services – all backed by a solid dental marketing plan. 4. Oral and Maxillofacial surgery : Oral and Maxillofacial surgery (OMS or OMFS) specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. In countries such as the UK, Australia and most of Europe, it is recognized as both a specialty of medicine and dentistry, and a dual degree in medicine and dentistry is compulsory. In other countries including the United States, India, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, and Sweden, it is a recognized specialty of dentistry. 5. Oral and maxillofacial radiology : Oral and maxillofacial radiology, also known as dental and maxillofacial radiology, is that specialty of dentistry concerned with performance and interpretation of diagnostic imaging used for examining the craniofacial, dental and adjacent structures. OMFR or DMFR is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association, Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. Cone Beam CT image of a post-operative orthognathic surgery. Oral and maxillofacial imaging includes cone beam CT, multislice CT, MRI, PET, ultrasound scan, dental panoramic radiology, cephalometric imaging, intra-oral imaging (e.g. Bitewing, peri-apical and occlusal radiographs) in addition to special tests like sialographs. Visible light, optical coherence tomography and tera ray imaging are examples of additional methods in use or under development. Image guidance includes haptic and robotic devices. 6. Dental Stem Cell: Dental pulp is the soft live tissue inside a tooth. Dental pulp contains stem cells, known as Dental Pulp Stem Cells. The finest Dental Pulp Stem Cells are found in a baby teeth or milk teeth. The stem cells from the milk teeth are 'mesenchymal' type of cells i.e. cells that have the ability to generate a wide variety of cell types like chondrocytes, osteoblasts and adipocytes. Chondrocytes are cells that have the ability to generate cartilage, which can play an important role in the treatment of arthritis and joint injuries. Osteoblasts are cells that have the ability to generate bones. Adipocytes are cells that have the ability to compose adipose tissue, specialized in storing energy as fat. In essence, dental stem cells can generate solid structures of the body such as bone, new dental tissue, cartilage and muscle. New research suggests the potential (currently under experimental research) to regenerate nerves. This is being studied further for use in dentistry and medicine. 7. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSA): When you have this condition, your breath can become very shallow or you may even stop breathing -- briefly -- while you sleep. It can happen many times a night in some people. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when something partly or completely blocks your upper airway during shut-eye. That makes your diaphragm and chest muscles work harder to open the obstructed airway and pull air into the lungs. Breathing usually resumes with a loud gasp, snort, or body jerk. You may not sleep well, but you probably won't be aware that this is happening. The condition can also reduce the flow of oxygen to vital organs and cause irregular heart rhythms. 8. The Future of Dentistry: Benefits of 3D Dentistry and CBCT Machines : One of the most important and exciting developments in dental diagnostic technology in the past decade has been the advent of 3D dental imaging. However, most people likely aren’t even aware of what 3D dental technology is- that’s how new it is! How is works? 9. Dental Marketing Trends : A Dental Market trend is a perceived tendency of financial markets to move in a particular direction over time. These trends are classified as secular for long time frames, primary for medium time frames, and secondary for short time frames. Traders attempt to identify market trends using technical analysis, a framework which characterizes market trends as predictable price tendencies within the market when price reaches support and resistance levels, varying over time. A trend can only be determined in hindsight, since at any time prices in the future are not known. 10. Dental Marketing Strategies : Dental Marketing strategy is a long-term, forward-looking approach to planning with the fundamental goal achieving a sustainable competitive advantage. Strategic planning involves an analysis of the company's strategic initial situation prior to the formulation, evaluation and selection of market-oriented competitive position that contributes to the company's goals and marketing objectives. Strategic Dental marketing, as a distinct field of study emerged in the 1970s, and built on strategic management that preceded it. Dental Marketing strategy highlights the role of marketing as a link between the organization and its Patients. 11. Oral Cancer : Oral cancer, also known as mouth cancer, is a type of head and neck cancer and is any cancerous tissue growth located in the oral cavity. It may arise as a primary lesion originating in any of the tissues in the mouth, by metastasis from a distant site of origin, or by extension from a neighboring anatomic structure, such as the nasal cavity. Alternatively, the oral cancers may originate in any of the tissues of the mouth, and may be of varied histologic types: teratoma, adenocarcinoma derived from a major or minor salivary gland, lymphoma from tonsillar or other lymphoid tissue, or melanoma from the pigment-producing cells of the oral mucosa. There are several types of oral cancers, but around 90% are squamous cell carcinomas, originating in the tissues that line the mouth and lips. Oral or mouth cancer most commonly involves the tongue. It may also occur on the floor of the mouth, cheek lining, gingiva (gums), lips, or palate (roof of the mouth). Most oral cancers look very similar under the microscope and are called squamous cell carcinoma, but less commonly other types of oral cancer occur, such as Kaposi's sarcoma. 12. Public Health Dentistry : Dental Public Health (DPH) is a non-clinical specialty of dentistry that deals with the prevention of oral disease and promotion of oral health. Dental public health is involved in the assessment of key dental health needs and coming up with effective solutions to improve the dental health of populations rather than individuals.[3]Prevention is becoming increasingly important. Dental related diseases are largely preventable and there is a growing burden on health care systems for cure. Dental public health looks beyond the role of a dental practitioner in treating dental disease, and seeks to reduce demand on health care systems by redirection of resources to priority areas. Countries around the world all face similar issues in relation to dental disease. Implementation of policies and principles vary due to available of resources. Similar to public health, an understanding of the many factors that influence health will assist the implementation of effective strategies. 13. Dental Traumatology : Dental trauma refers to trauma (injury) to the teeth and/or periodontium (gums, periodontal ligament, alveolar bone), and nearby soft tissues such as the lips, tongue, etc. The study of dental trauma is called dental traumatology. 14. How to Create an Awesome Dental Marketing Plan : Every small business owner tends to struggle with creating their first marketing plan. I think the main reason for this is that most business owners tend to focus on the outcome and end campaigns, while often overlooking the strategy, planning and execution phases. Unless you've gone to school for marketing or business, you probably haven't been trained to create a strong marketing plan. Doctor's that we work with here at Elevate DDS have many years of school under their belts, but not many of them studied any sort of marketing during their time in college. This is why we thought it would be a good idea to outline what a dental marketing plan should look like, from inception to campaign completion. 15. Nanotechnology Inspires Next-generation Dental Materials : Have a cavity? Ask your dentist about filling it with a mixture of nanoparticles including silica and zirconia. These white fillings resemble teeth better than their metal alternatives and are less likely to come loose or fracture teeth. This is just the beginning argue scientists in a review of 'nanodentistry.' Next-generation dental materials incorporating nanotechnology aim to help teeth self-heal, rebuild enamel, and protect against bacterial infections. 16. Dentistry – New Technologies : There are four major disciplines within dental technology. These are fixed prosthesis including crowns, bridges and implants; removable prosthesis, including dentures and removable partial dentures; maxillofacial prosthesis, including ocular prosthesis and craniofacial prosthesis; and orthodontics and auxiliaries, including orthodontic appliances and mouth guards. The dentist communicates with the dental technologist with prescriptions, drawings and measurements taken from the patient. The most important aspect of this is a dental impression into which the technologist flows a gypsum dental stone to create a replica of the patient’s anatomy known as a dental cast. A technologist can then use this cast for the construction of custom appliances. 17. Dental Abnormalities : Tooth abnormalities may be categorized according to whether they have environmental or developmental causes.While environmental abnormalities may appear to have an obvious cause, there may not appear to be any known cause for some developmental abnormalities. Environmental forces may affect teeth during development, destroy tooth structure after development, discolor teeth at any stage of development, or alter the course of tooth eruption. Developmental abnormalities most commonly affect the number, size, shape, and structure of teeth. 18. Cosmetic Dentistry: Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the functionality) of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Many dentists refer to themselves as "cosmetic dentists" regardless of their specific education, specialty, training, and experience in this field. This has been considered unethical with a predominant objective of marketing to patients. 19. Forensic Dentistry : Forensic dentistry or forensic odontology is the application of dental knowledge to those criminal and civil laws that are enforced by police agencies in a criminal justice system. Forensic dentists are involved in assisting investigative agencies to identify recovered human remains in addition to the identification of whole or fragmented bodies; forensic dentists may also be asked to assist in determining age, race, occupation, previous dental history and socioeconomic status of unidentified human beings. Forensic dentistry is the proper handling, examination and evaluation of dental evidence, which will be then presented in the interest of justice. The evidence that may be derived from teeth is the age (in children) and identification of the person to whom the teeth belong. This is done using dental records including radiographs, ante-mortem (prior to death) and post-mortem (after death) photographs and DNA. "Forensic odontology" is derived from Latin, meaning a forum or where legal matters are discussed. 20. Orthodontics : Orthodontia, also called orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, is a specialty field of dentistry that deals primarily with malpositioned teeth and the jaws: their diagnosis, prevention and correction. An orthodontist is a specialist who has undergone special training in a dental school or college after they have graduated in dentistry. 21. Endodontics : Endodontics (from the Greek roots endo- "inside" and odont- "tooth") is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp. Endodontics encompasses the study and practice of the basic and clinical sciences involving the biology of the normal dental pulp. It also includes the etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the dental pulp along with associated periradicular conditions. Endodontics has evolved tremendously in the past decade and its applications have immensely improved the quality of dental treatment. 22. Periodontics : Periodontology or periodontics (from Greek περί peri "around"; and ὀδούς odous "tooth", genitive ὀδόντος odontos) is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. A person who practices this specialty is known as a periodontist. 23. Prosthodontics : Prosthodontics, also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry, is the area of dentistry that focuses on dental prostheses. It is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA), Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow, Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. The ADA defines it as "the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. 24. Restrorative Dentistry : Restorative dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual. Restorative dentistry encompasses the dental specialties of endodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics and its foundation is based upon how these interact in cases requiring multifaceted care. In the UK restorative dentistry is legally recognized as a specialty under EU directive, with voices from the British Society for Restorative Dentistry and the Association of Consultants & Specialists in Restorative Dentistry.   Scope of Dental Marketing-2018 Dental Marketing is the integration of marketing strategies in the field of dentistry to help Dental Professionals harness the full potential of their practice. It involves the use of tools and techniques of marketing to achieve a certain degree of publicity and broaden the reach of the practice and the practitioner. The conference is a rare opportunity for all individuals of the dental community to upgrade their know-how of the latest marketing strategies. Why to attend? Dentistry & Dental Marketing has been designed with a twofold objective in mind. The main theme of the conference is "Dentistry meets marketing” which covers a wide range of critically important sessions. The event aims at bringing a wide range of dental professionals ranging from mainstream Prosthodontics & Orthodontics to relatively offbeat Micro dentistry, Holistic Dentistry etc and also lays a special emphasis at Educating and informing dental practitioners with the latest knowledge of Marketing strategies that can be applied to counter the undervaluation dental practices face. To add to its promise, the venue of the event has been selected after much research to assure that the event is being held in one of the hotspots for the concerned field, therefore attendance is expected to be astounding, both in quality and quantity. The variety of prospective audience includes: figures of academic excellence, interested industrialists, Students, exhibitors and eminent faces from the world of marketing thus enabling the sponsors a unique chance to choose from a pool of outstanding scopes for expansion of their business, new project undertaking and recruitment. All these factors combined and several more make Dental Marketing-2018 a “must attend” dental conference.

Featuring a screening of the newly released documentary film from Lives in the Balance, The Kids We Lose School-based professionals, classroom teachers, administrators, mental health clinicians, school nurses, and paraprofessionals are increasingly challenged to effectively meet the needs of youths with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. In schools, tight budgets, high-stakes testing, and Zero Tolerance policies haven't made the task any easier. In clinical settings, these youths can be extremely difficult to work with, engage in treatment, and help. By the time these youths end up in juvenile detention and treatment settings, they are often alienated, disenfranchised, and marginalized and have lost faith in those trying to help them. This conference is about how to start moving things in the right direction, and features cutting-edge interventions and dynamic speakers, including Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, psychologist and New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline; Dr. Ross Greene, psychologist and New York Times bestselling author of The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings and Founding Director of Lives in the Balance; Dr. Bettina Love, Associate Professor of Educational Theory & Practice at the University of Georgia, whose research focuses on the ways in which urban youth form social, cultural, and political identities; Dr. Mona Delahooke, child psychologist and author of Social & Emotional Development in Early Intervention, and Dr. Laura Rogers, Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of the School Psychology Program at Tufts University. It's two full days you won't want to miss, filled with invaluable information and practical, innovative ideas and intervention strategies. And you can earn up to 12 CE's!  You can register for both days or just one. But don't miss it! Registration: (8:00 to 8:30) ~ Continental Breakfast Keynote: (8:45 to 10:15) ~ Tina Payne Bryson, PhDNo-Drama Discipline: Based on the ideas from Dr. Bryson's New York Times bestseller No-Drama Discipline (with Dan Siegel), this keynote highlights the link between a child’s neurological development and the way clinicians and educators react to misbehavior, providing an effective, compassionate roadmap for dealing with challenging behavior in the classroom. Defining the true meaning of the “D” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), Dr. Bryson explains how to reach a child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into a teachable moment. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem-solving becomes a win/win situation. Keynote: (10:30 to 12:00) ~ Ross W. Greene, PhDCollaborative & Proactive Solutions: Shifting From Power and Control to Collaboration and Problem-Solving: Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is the evidence-based model Dr. Greene described his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints.  The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual:  it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behavior, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention. LUNCH: (12:00 to 1:00) ~ Lunch Provided BREAKOUTS: (1:00 to 2:30 and 2:30 to 4:15) Teaching the Developing Brain: (First Breakout Session Only) Tina Payne Bryson, PhD                                        Using stories, examples, and lots of humor, Dr. Bryson encourages clinicians and teachers to keep their own developing brains in mind as they nurture their students’ growing minds.  Get the Ball Rolling: Identifying Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems,  Ross W. Greene, Ph.D                      If you want to solve problems collaboratively and proactively with kids, you'll need to identify those problems proactively. In this breakout group, you'll learn how to use the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP), an instrument developed to help clinicians, educators, and caregivers focus their intervention efforts.  When The Educational Goals Didn't Change, Laura Rogers, EdD, and David Aptaker, JD                                    How will the unanimous Supreme Court ruling on the benefits children with disabilities are entitled to under IDEA (Endrew F v Douglas County School District) affect your practices? This session will provide an opportunity to review the significance of the Court’s decision within an historical context. We will discuss how our practices can align with the Court’s determination that for all students with disabilities, "the IEP is reasonably calculated to enable the child to make progress appropriate in light of the child's circumstances.” Participants will receive documentation for attending a NASP-approved workshop of 1.5 hours regarding ethical practice and/or the legal regulation of school psychology. Kids Do Well if They Can (Move)! (Second Breakout Session Only), Greg Santucci, MS OTR                          Active students make better learners. This breakout session will explain sensory processing and how it impacts a student's behavior and learning. Participants will learn about the different sensory systems, sensory "diets," and how to help kids improve their self-regulation skills. Get ready to MOVE and learn practical strategies to implement in clinical settings and classrooms immediately. THE KIDS WE LOSE Screening: (4:30 to 6:00)  Registration: (8:00 to 8:30) ~ Continental Breakfast Keynote: (8:45 to 10:15) ~ Bettina Love, PhDMoving Beyond Survive: A Pedagogy of Mattering: All clients/students have potential that clinicians and educators must nourish, protect, and grow for a better world. Dr. Love’s talk will focus on how innovative civic education, students’ knowledge production and multiple identities, and Hip Hop culture can be cultivated to engage clients/students in the work of fighting for visibility, inclusion, and justice.   Keynote: (10:30 to 12:00) ~ Mona Delahooke, PhDThe Tip of the Iceberg: Looking Beyond Behavior in Helping Behaviorally Challenged Kids: Dr. Delahooke will present a "developmental iceberg" model that describes why challenging behaviors (what we can readily observe in a child) are only the tip of the iceberg, with the causes and triggers often invisible. When we understand the underlying reasons for challenging behaviors, we can provide the correct supports and help build psychological resilience through trusting and engaged relationships. Video-taped examples will provide a compelling argument about the need to shift the lens from a disorder and deficit-based framework to a relationship-based paradigm on the cutting edge of neuroscience, mental health and education. LUNCH: (12:00 to 1:00) ~ Lunch Included BREAKOUTS: (1:00 to 2:30 and 2:30 to 4:15) Get Free: Creativity, Hip Hop Civics Ed, Intersectionality, & Joy, Dr. Bettina Love, PhD                                      Discover a civics curriculum for youth, entitled GET FREE, inspired by the exuberance, ingenuity, political energy, resistance, love, and DIY model of underground Hip Hop. As relevant to clinicians as it is to educators. Solving Behavioral Challenges from the Bottom-Up: A Neurodevelopmental Approach, Mona Delahooke, PhDDr. Delahooke will describe how caregivers and professionals can help bolster basic capacities that lead to successful social problem solving and symbolic reasoning. Video examples will highlight how emotional co-regulation, an appreciation of individual differences, and an understanding of the child’s social and emotional milestones help create a roadmap for interpersonal safety, communication, healing and hope. Stickers Don't Solve Problems, Ross Greene, PhD                                                                                            Learn how to solve problems collaboratively and proactively using the three steps of “Plan B” and see what it looks like in schools. School Refusal:  I’m Not Going to School, Laura Rogers, EdD                                                                              What are the best ways to help clients/students are who refusing to come to school? This breakout will review contemporary research and recommendations for responding to children who are not coming to school. The reasons children do not attend school are varied, and often shift over time, so that whatever first kept a child away may no longer be the primary cause. We will highlight several approaches, focusing on one case study using the principles of Dr. Greene's Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model. Breakout participants will have an opportunity to adapt the intervention model to a situation occurring in their own work. FAQs Can I pay by Purchase Order? Yes, click on the REGISTER button.

Target Audience: Cardiac Surgeons University Professors Research Scholars Business Entrepreneurs Data Management  Medical Colleges Cardiology Fellows Cardiology Students, Scientists Training Institutes Manufacturing Medical Devices Companies Software making associations   Sessions/Tracks 1. Women & Pediatric Cardiology The pathophysiology of essential hypertension in men and women remains under investigation and the mechanisms responsible for the sexual dimorphism in blood pressure control are unclear. Sex-specific hemodynamic characteristics and the influence of sex hormones may account for some of the differences. Studies of the effects on blood pressure of menopausal hormone therapy have yielded conflicting results. In the WHI, women using hormone replacement therapy had a lower prevalence of hypertension (35%) than never users (41%), but users tended to be younger and thinner. After adjustment for these and other potentially confounding variables, the current use of hormone replacement therapy was associated with a 25% increase in the risk of hypertension compared with never use or past use. The pediatric cardiology and congenital heart disease have experienced considerable progress in the last few years, with advances in new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques that can be applied at all stages of life from the fetus to the adult. Sub Tracks: Obesity & Cancer Myocardial Infarction Silent Ischemia Coronary Artery Disease Peripheral Arterial Disease pediatric obesity and CHD risk  . 2. Diabetes, Obesity & Stroke in Children Childhood obesity is the most prevalent nutritional disorder among children and adolescents worldwide. Overweight and obese children are more likely to stay obese into adulthood and to develop noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. Having diabetes or pre-diabetes puts one at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of premature death & disability in adulthood. One can lower its risk by keeping the blood glucose (also called blood sugar), blood pressure, and blood cholesterol close to the recommended target numbers—the levels suggested by diabetes experts for good health. Stroke and coronary heart disease can be caused by the same problem – atherosclerosis. For most NCDs resulting from obesity, the risks depend partly on the age of onset and on the duration of obesity. The prevalence of obesity is highest among specific ethnic groups. Obesity increases the risk of heart diseases in children and adults. Childhood obesity predisposes the individual to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, liver and kidney diseases and causes reproductive dysfunction in adults. Sub Tracks: Convenience foods and obesity Weight Flux Dyslipidemia Hyperinsulinemia Electrocardiography   3. Anaesthesia and Cardiac Image General anaesthesia for cardiac MRI is governed by similar principles for any anesthetic technique in children with heart disease. High-risk imaging refers to imaging in patients with medical or health-related risks, imaging with equipment-related risks, and procedure-related risks such as MRI-guided surgery, minimally invasive procedures. MRI can be performed in patients who have undergone previous cardiac surgery. Absolute contraindications include patients with pacemakers and defibrillators.  A Deep sedation or general anaesthesia is indicated in neonates, infants and small children for MRI. The challenges during MRI include limited access to patient and equipment, low ambient temperature with risk for hypothermia and a noisy unfamiliar environment with remote location from the operating room. Anesthetic care for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as moderate sedation, deep sedation, monitored anesthesia care, general anesthesia, or ventilatory and critical care support. Sub Tracks: Morphology Cardiac MR imaging Neurological effects CT radiation risk   4. Nutrition, Diet & Exercise A healthy diet and lifestyle are our best weapons to fight cardiovascular disease, Regular exercise builds lean muscle, which burns more calories than fat When combined with a healthy diet, exercise can speed up weight loss.  it's the overall pattern of our choices that counts. Some of the barriers and facilitators identified by young people had been addressed by soundly evaluated effective interventions, the prevalence of physical inactivity among 51% of adult Canadians is higher than that of all other modifiable risk factors, but significant gaps were identified where no evaluated interventions appear to have been published (e.g. better labelling of food products), or where there were no methodologically sound evaluations. Exercise can also lower blood pressure. It reduces your risk of heart disease and reduces levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol. DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), which helps to lower blood pressure, or TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes), which focuses on lowering our cholesterol levels. This helps it pump more blood with each heartbeat. This delivers more oxygen to our body. With more oxygen, our body functions more efficiently. Physical inactivity is a modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease and a widening variety of other chronic diseases, including diabetes mellitus, cancer colon and breast, obesity, hypertension, bone and joint diseases osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, and depression. Rigorous evaluation is required particularly to assess the effectiveness of increasing the availability of affordable healthy food in the public and private spaces occupied by young people. Lack of exercise, a poor diet and other unhealthy habits can take their toll over the years Exercise makes your heart stronger. Sub Tracks: Alternative Medicine Alcohol Childhood and Adolescent Obesity Fitness, Sports, and Sports Nutrition Herbal Information & Heart Health   5. Heart - Surgery & Transplantation Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people this is a treatment option for people who are in the end stages of heart failure, but their conditions haven't sufficiently improved. 90% of heart transplants are performed on patients with end-stage heart failure. A heart transplant is an operation in which the diseased heart in a person is replaced with a healthy heart from a deceased donor. The first heart transplant patient survived only 18 days, four of Groote Schuur Hospital’s first 10 patients survived for more than one year, two living for 13 and 23 years, respectively. Clinical research studies are designed to answer specific questions, sometimes about a new drug or medical device's safety and effectiveness. Rejection is the most common cause of the donor heart failing in heart transplant patients. If the transplanted heart fails, the patient dies. Sub Tracks: heart failure Coronary heart disease Pulmonary hypertension Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network Donor Heart   6. Heart Diseases and Cardiac Arrest Heart attack mistakenly refers to cardiac arrest, but heart attacks are caused by a blockage that stops the blood supply to the heart. This is because a person who is having a heart attack may develop a dangerous heart rhythm, which can cause a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest refers to the disruption of heart function that is the malfunction of electrical system of the heart. This analysis demonstrates that the annual NIH investment in CA research is low relative to other leading causes of death in the United States and has declined over the past decade. Many cardiac arrests in adults happen because of a heart attack. Sudden cardiac death (SCD) from cardiac arrest is a major international public health problem accounting for an estimated 15–20% of all deaths; it is a leading cause of death in the United States. Sub Tracks: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy Methamphetamine Sudden cardiac arrest Implantable cardiac defibrillator   7. Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Toxicology Cardiovascular toxicology may be caused due to chemotherapy or due to the medication for the treatment of heart diseases. Cardiovascular Pharmacology deals with the study of drug action which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the tissue, cell, organ or organism. The interactions affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. The cardiovascular group is studying the connections between salt intake or obesity on blood pressure control mechanisms. These investigators use state of the art molecular, cellular and integrative approaches to study vascular function and neural control of blood pressure. Sub Tracks: Neurotoxicology Drug addiction and alcohol dependence Neurodegenerative disorders Circadian rhythm disorders   8. Diabetes & Cardiovascular Engineering Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Cardiovascular Engineering: An International Journal is a publishing forum that promotes innovative methods and technological advancements in the basic understanding of the cardiovascular system and in cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment applications. Cardiovascular solid mechanics work addresses the mechanical properties and stresses in healthy and diseased arterial cross sections and examines the role of mechanical factors in the disruption of atherosclerotic plaques. Sub Tracks: Diabetes mellitus Heart Otago Cardiovascular and respiratory physiology Translational Physiology   9. Vascular Biology Our vascular biology research focuses largely on diseases of the aorta and diseases involving leaky blood vessels, including age-related macular degeneration, peripheral vascular disease, stroke and solid tumour growth. The vascular network consists of both small and large vessels specifically designed to accommodate varying levels of blood flow and pressure, depending upon the location within the body. Sub Tracks: Arrhythmia & EP Thrombosis Lymphoma Blood sugar Anemia   10. Pediatric & Fetal Cardiology Expert fetal cardiac evaluation is performed using superior ultrasound machinery with the highest resolution imaging available, including 2D and Doppler analysis, as well as 3D and 4D technology. Initial detection of cancer in children also is taking earlier attention in Clinical Pediatrics cancer. This allows us to perform first trimester screening so that patients can be referred at the earliest stages of pregnancy. Clinical Pediatrics allergy is also one of the most important and widely studied areas in novel research of this field, Clinical Pediatrics is a medical journal that follow to child-center care, the clinical, scientific, behavioral, educational, or ethical nature. The Fetal Cardiology Program offers evaluation, diagnosis and management of pregnancies at-risk for fetal structural heart defects and rhythm disturbances. Sub Tracks: Fetal echo Congenital Heart Disease Fetal Echocardiography Fetal Echocardiography   11. Epidemiology and Public Health Epidemiology is often considered the key scientific underpinning of public health practice. Epidemiology is the study of disease in populations. Veterinarians and others involved in the preventive medicine and public health professions use epidemiological methods for disease surveillance, outbreak investigation, and observational studies to identify risk factors of zoonotic disease in both human and animal populations. Epidemiology is often considered the key scientific underpinning of public health practice this commentary examines the scope of epidemiology and delineates the role of epidemiology in relation to public health. Sub Tracks: AIDS Rabies Water-borne illnesses Vibrio vulnificus Biostatistics Public Health Sciences Global Health   12. Insulin pumps and Therapy Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) using an external pump, offers both a better blood glucose stability as compared to multiple daily injections and a broader flexibility in life mode, and reduces the frequency of severe hypoglycemia. An insulin pump is a small device about the size of a small cell phone that is worn externally and can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. Advances in technology have allowed individuals with diabetes a choice in insulin delivery methods: MDI or CSII. Insulin pump therapy is an increasingly popular method of insulin replacement therapy. Because the insulin delivery from insulin pumps can more closely mimic what your body does naturally, you can improve your blood sugar control. Sub Tracks: Genetic link of Diabetes Obesity and Heart Obesity & Cancer Glucose Monitoring Hypoglycemia   13. Angiography & Cardiac Surgery The present study compared the clinical prediction of the effect of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) on coronary blood flow and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) with changes in gated myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. Our clinical prediction models could enhance the identification of patients at low risk of significant CAD for whom CCA might potentially be avoided before cardiac surgery. Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting is safe, feasible, and associated with excellent outcomes and graft patency at 6 months post-surgery. To determine if coronary computed tomographic angiography enhances prediction of perioperative risk in patients before non-cardiac surgery and to assess the preoperative coronary anatomy in patients who experience a myocardial infarction after non-cardiac surgery. Sub Tracks: Coronary Angiography Angioplasty Electrocardiography Heart catheterization Coronary artery bypass grafting   14. Industrial aspects on Cardiology This chapter presents some preliminary findings and hypotheses drawn from field interviews with key participants who are involved in the innovation process in two important and widely used technologies that provide diagnostic information about the heart. It provides a forum for original and review articles related to experimental cardiology that meet its stringent scientific standards. Analysis of this tentative model of the innovation process helped us to identify some points of leverage for increasing the rate and sharpening the focus of innovation. We discuss how these levers could productively stimulate changes in managerial and public policy.  If much of what will transpire over the course of a day involves the use of various medical products, then what is needed are methods by which there can be a knowledge transfer (education) between the industry and cardiovascular clinicians. Much of the progress in cardiology during the 20th century was made possible by improved diagnostic tools.

Scientific Sessions Session 01: Dementia Dementia is a  chronic Neurodegenerative disorder in which the complete deterioration of the intellectual functioning and behavior occurs.It results in progressive memory loss, thus affecting the lifestyle of the people. Dementia is not a single disease entity rather it is the group of symptoms. The common symptoms includes personality changes, inability to recognize, emotional problems, a failing sense of direction. It is stated by Alzheimer's society that around 50 million people are living with Dementia and it is also stated that for every three seconds, a person is developing Dementia. Dementia is prevailing as one of the priority condition in the field of medicine. Dementia is main leading cause of death in England and Wales over heart diseases. Alzheimer’s disease is 6th leading cause of death in the USA and it kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined. To solve problems of globally various Dementia conferences are  arranged to find cure for Dementia society universally.

If the person has no memory loss and if he/she is mentally stable and healthy, i.e, a normal person, is said to be in no cognitive stage of the syndrome. The stage 2 or very mild cognitive decline has no evident symptoms, due to ageing the forgetfulness, which is the common symptom emerges during this stage. During the third stage i.e, mild cognitive decline stage  people experience increased forgetfulness, and face difficulty in finding words. Stage 4 or moderate cognitive decline includes severe symptoms like decrease in concentration, and the person faces difficulty such that he /she could not travel alone. In stage 5 or moderately severe cognitive decline occurs such that people have difficulties in completing tasks and people start withdrawing from social activities. Next is the middle dementia where the people tend to forget the recent memory activities. The last stage is that they have no ability to talk or communicate. They completely require human help and care.

Alzheimer’s is a chronic Neurodegenerative disorder. Patient of Alzheimer’s shows early symptoms of short term memory and later progresses to problems in language, disorientation. Causes of Alzheimer’s are not clear yet, but 70% of risks are associated with genetics. There are no existing treatments to reverse or stop Alzheimer’s. Most of patients with alzheimer’s are above 65 years of age but 4-5% cases are of early onset Alzheimer’s. It’s still one of the costly diseases. Separate Alzheimer’s conferences has been arranged to make aware world for its consequences. In 2016, hundreds of conferences has main topic as Alzheimer’s disease as it contributes to 60-70% cases of Dementia. Several countries Governments are taking initiative in Alzheimer’s Congress such as UK, USA, Canada, France having high ratio of deaths due to Alzheimer’s patients and other Dementias.

Brain has one of the richest networks, sudden changes in thinking causes problems in supply of oxygen and nutrients to brain, causes series of minor attacks. Vascular Dementia can’t be tracked until it has series of attacks. Death of brain cells causes problems in memory, thinking and reasoning. There are various types of Vascular Dementia such as Stroke-related Dementia, Post-stroke Dementia, Single-infarct and Multi-infarct Dementia, Sub cortical Dementia. High blood pressure, High blood cholesterol level, Diabetes are some risk factors which majorly contribute to the severity of Vascular Dementia. Vascular Dementia is common type of Dementia after Alzheimer’s disease contributing to nearly 20% cases making it significant in discussions of Dementia conference.

In Lewy body Dementia, disruption among brain cells occur, after one year of observation and progression in symptoms with Parkinson’s disease the diagnosis of Lewy body Dementia is possible. If cognitive problems occur with a year of movement problems doctors declares it as Lewy body Dementia and if not then it is declared as Parkinson’s disease. It is normal kind of Dementia after Alzheimer's illness and having same cases as Vascular Dementia making it critical in interloculation of Dementia meetings.

Spindle neurons have 70% loss in Frontotemporal Dementia patients while other neurons remain unchanged. Temporal lobes have specific function such as right temporal lobe involved in recognition of faces and known objects. Left temporal lobe involved in meaning of names and words of objects. Frontotemporal Dementia includes changes in behavior, personality and difficulty in speech. It is significant cause of Dementia in younger people. MRI scans may show the frontal and temporal lobe atrophy.

It is one of the common Neuro degenerative disorders where the degeneration occurs in the cortex region of the brain. It is also due to the accumulation of amyloid protein in that region. The PCA affected  patients show amyloid plaques and tangles in the neurofibrils. The challenge is that this syndrome shows distinct Neuropsychological deficits still remaining as the complicated forms of Dementia. PCA has been recognized for more than two decades, and yet the condition is almost abandoned by researchers. Hence it is the most suitable topic for discussion in the Dementia conference.

For example, mental health issues such as depression can mimic Dementia. The reason behind development of Dementia is not completely understood in Parkinsons disease patient. Hence this conference will provide a platform to discuss the problem.  Related Conference: World Congress & Expo on Dementia & Neuroscience, November 12-14, 2018, Toronto, Canada | International Dementia Conference, April 16-17, 2018, Dublin, Ireland | International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer Europe Conference , October 29-31 , 2018, Barcelona, Spain | International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias, November 11-14, 2018, Sydney, Australia | World Congress on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, May 30-31, 2018 Osaka, Japan | World Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurophysiology and Cognitive Neuroscience, August 31-September 01, 2018, Massachusetts, USA | Related societies: The World Dementia Council | Dementia Australia | Motor Neurone Disease Association | Rare Dementia Support | Association for Frontal Temporal Degeneration | National Stroke Association | Parkinsons Disease Foundation | Session 09: Diseases associated with Dementia The neurological conditions in which the Dementia occurs include some disorders like  Parkinson's disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Huntington's disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). These diseases mimic Dementia or has Dementia as a major sign in the disease. The diseases associated with Dementia have the disease associates that include depression, brain tumors, nutritional deficiencies, head injuries, hydrocephalus, infections (AIDS, meningitis, syphilis), Drug reactions and Thyroid problems. The genetic factors are responsible for the establishment of disorders like Parkinsons disease, Down Syndrome, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, The other factors for Dementia includes physical factors like head injuries and Traumatic brain injuries.

The numerous neuroepigenetic mechanisms have been involved in several Neurological and Neurodegenerative diseases for the regulation of various epigenetic mechanisms. All the mechanisms in Epigenetics will have a biochemical characteristics such that it helps in regulation process.The basic principle of Neuroepigenetics is that once DNA methylation patterns are established upon the genome in terminally differentiated cells, those modifications are permanent and essentially immutable. Other epigenetic molecular mechanisms are also in play in neurons some are ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling, genomic imprinting , SNF2 chromatin remodeling.

Dementia is progressive in nature; Age is one of the most important risk factor of Dementia, 65years exceeding persons has more chances of having Dementia. Ageing and genetic inheritance from ancestors is beyond control but other risk factors such as Hypertension,  Hyperlipidaemia, Hyperthoiroidism, Alcohol use in large amounts, smoking can be prevented or controlled. Head injury, Stroke or Brain tumor may cause Dementia. Few risk factors can be prevented with healthy lifestyle and proper diet. Causes and risk elements have contributed enormously in Dementia research and discovered new measures in Dementia conferences.

It is reported that there is a very little published data on Epigenomics. It is said that the data are obtained from high through put technologies in screening of human brain. These data intend the upcoming researchers to know and design their experiments. The Data Mining plays an important role in the prediction of the disorder, where the actual data is compared with the real data and the results are interpreted. The Transcriptomics and Proteomics studies has also been carried out providing necessary solutions for the problems.

It is necessary to provide time to Dementia patients to plan future and make them literate about the possible effects in the  future. There are various tests for diagnosing Dementia such as Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), Mental Score Test, Trail Making Test.  MMSE test include series of exercises in which various problems are checked with memory, speech, ability to respond. Blood test is also done to check levels of vitamin B12 and Thyroid hormones, which may be responsible. Brain scans such as MRI and CT scans used for checking brain tumor and Strokes in Vascular Dementia. Neurology gatherings talked rigorously on Dementia Diagnosis and it is always misleading to different conditions like Parkinson’s' disease. Hence discovery and establishment of  new methodologies and techniques for analysis is in the urge for the Dementia society for dependable diagnosis methods.  Related Conference: International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer's Association International Conference, July 22-26, 2018, Chicago, USA | International Conference On Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia, September17-19, 2018, Paris, France | Research Conference 2018, March 20 - 21, London, UK | National Dementia Conference, May 15-16 2018, Melbourne, Australia | Advances and Innovations in Dementia, September 17-18, 2018, Singapore | International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, October 29-31 2018, Valencia, Spain | Related societies: Dementia Society of America | Alzheimer's  Association | Alzheimer's Foundation of America | Alzheimer’s Society-United against dementia | ageUK | Alzheimer Society of Canada | Lewy Body Dementia Association | Session 14: Treatment Modalities Treatment modality is a method that is followed to treat a patient suffering from a disease condition. The treatment modalities have three main approaches ,which include medical, psychological and sociocultural approaches. The most important consideration is that, in practice, no single treatment is considered sufficient for the treatment of Dementia. By now the combination therapy which involves the use of two or more drugs proves to be efficient. The other treatment methods which involve the stem cell therapy and gene therapy has now created the spotlight in the Dementia Treatment. Hence the advanced treatment methods can be discussed in the conference.   Related Conference: World Congress & Expo on Dementia & Neuroscience, November 12-14, 2018, Toronto, Canada | International Dementia Conference, April 16-17, 2018, Dublin, Ireland | International Dementia Conference, June 7-8, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer Europe Conference , October 29-31 , 2018, Barcelona, Spain | International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias, November 11-14, 2018, Sydney, Australia | World Congress on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, May 30-31, 2018 Osaka, Japan | World Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurophysiology and Cognitive Neuroscience, August 31-September 01, 2018, Massachusetts, USA | Related societies: The World Dementia Council | Dementia Australia | Motor Neurone Disease Association | Rare Dementia Support | Association for Frontal Temporal Degeneration | National Stroke Association | Parkinsons Disease Foundation | Session 15: Therapeutic Targets Therapeutic targets are bio molecules maybe a nucleic acid or a protein whose biological activity can be modified by a drug candidate. In some cases of Dementia, it is reported that proteins are the cause for the disease. For example the accumulation of amyloid protein in the regions of Brain acts as a major factor for the disorder, hence it can be a therapeutic target . Therapeutic targets play an important role in identifying the potential drug candidates . Hence the conference provides the discussion sessions to reveal the targets for drug design process.

The most of drugs are in second and third phases.. Most of clinical trials are done in specific areas are amyloid beta plaques, the immune system, tau tangles . New medications for Dementia being developed in 2014/2015, 31% were named symptoms modifying. There are many developments are going on in Drug discovery of Dementia as old treatments are unable to stop the progression of Dementia. Most associations share their exploration on new medications for Dementia in Dementia conferences to get higher esteem to their items. This gets to be distinctly gainful to different geriatric doctors to redesign themselves with such medications and progressing possibilities by going to Dementia conferences. Such Dementia meetings will help researchers to know target areas for Drug development in Dementia and work towards it and also Dementia conferences exhibit clinical trial medications and offers positivity to discover new approaches in curing Dementia Related Conference: International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer's Association International Conference, July 22-26, 2018, Chicago, USA | International Conference On Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia, September17-19, 2018, Paris, France | Research Conference 2018, March 20 - 21, London, UK | National Dementia Conference, May 15-16 2018, Melbourne, Australia | Advances and Innovations in Dementia, September 17-18, 2018, Singapore | International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, October 29-31 2018, Valencia, Spain | Related societies: Dementia Society of America | Alzheimer's  Association | Alzheimer's Foundation of America | Alzheimer’s Society-United against dementia | ageUK | Alzheimer Society of Canada | Lewy Body Dementia Association | Session 17: Awareness and Care Practices Dementia is predominant disorder that affects more number of people around the world.  Diagnosis of the patient with Dementia frightens the person affected by the syndrome, their family members and caretakers. Better understanding about public awareness of Dementia aids more effective health and social policies. Dementia patients need assistance and full time care as much as drugs. Some common care practices in Dementia are assistance in food and fluid consumption, pain management, social engagement ensuring safety and security of Dementia patients. Main aim of care practices is to ensure cut in hospitalization and psychotropic drugs. Understanding patient’s mood changes, particular behavior, speech problems and help in rectifying them. Dementia patients need end of life care so qualified nursing staff is needed. Few care practices which are used are indoor and outdoor activities, visual and audio stimulation, Art therapy. Care practices in Dementia have been critical to engage in international Dementia meetings. In need to evolve in Dementia care world gathering and genuine talks on Dementia care is required. The Dementia conference discusses public awareness as well as care practices to achieve higher rate of early diagnosis and to decrease the distress among the patient, family and caregivers.

Each case report distinguishes in conditions such as age, family background, treatment given and effects of it. This all helps to design, categorize the future aspects of disease. Case report will be highly helpful for the researchers to develop new methods for physicians to develop quick diagnosis methods in  Dementia patients. Case reports in Dementia gives some thought regarding diagnosis, treatment and level of cure perhaps conceivable prevention to be taken moreover. Be that as it may, most recognized case reports is to be talked  in the Dementia conference which would be extremely useful to researchers to carry on with their work.

It is stated that, by now there are around 800,000 people in UK with dementia and the numbers are expected to rise to 1,142,677 by 2025 and 2,092,945 by 2051.   It is also reported that around 45 000 people below the age of 65 are suffering from early onset of dementia and 773,502 are in late onset of Dementia. 311,730 (39%) of people living with dementia over 65 are living in care homes (either residential care or nursing homes) and 493,639 (61%) are living in the community among the people.Based on the onset of disease, more people are prone to Dementia in the late onset period. During the late onset period i.e., between the age of 65 to 95* women develop the disease more frequently than men. There are more women patients and victims than men in the late onset case. During the early onset of the disease i.e., between the age group 30-64 men are more prone to the disease than women.   Among the Dementia sub types, Alzheimer’s is the major type contributing to 62% among all the sub types, and amidst the other sub types next ranks the Vascular Dementia which contributes for about 17% of the cases. Next lies the mixed dementia which is ranking third in prevalence. The other sub types which include Dementia with Lewy bodies is found in 4% of people, Frontotemporal dementia in 2%, Parkinson’s dementia in 2%. The other associated diseases with dementia contributes around 3 % of the cases. Dementia with not only ruining the life of people also cause a major impact on the economy in the society. The greater part of the cost spent on Dementia care fall under three main categories health care cost, social care cost, informal care costs. The health care which includes hospitalization and treatment contributes about 16.4% of total cost, the social care which involves the care given by the nursing homes, home care contributes about 39 % of cost and the rest 44.6% comes under the informal care which the given by the family or friends related to the patient. List of Universities carrying out research in Dementia in UK, University of Cambridge Lancaster University University of Worcester Cardiff University University of Leicester University of Sheffield UK Dementia Research Institute University of Stirling Bangor University University of Oxford Both the Government and the Charities help the universities and the Collaborative Research centres to carry out Dementia research in developing novel medicines for dementia. The list of Governmental funding agents, Non-Governmental Organizations and Companies providing funds for Dementia Research in UK includes the following, Alzheimer’s Research UK Medical Research Council (MRC) The Dementia Discovery Fund Alzheimer’s Society UK Department of Health Biogen GSK Johnson and Johnson Lilly Pfizer Takeda Drugs that are available in the market for the treatment of dementia includes Memantine, Donepezil, Rivastigmine, Galantamine. Among these drugs Donepezil is considered as the most effective one, since it has cured dementia in about 59,931 people. It is also reported that about 30,000 people are treated with Rivastigmine. The Memantine ranks third in treating about 14,640 patients, the Galantamine drug cures Dementia in about 10,000 patients.  18 Conference Highlights Dementia Clinical Stages in Dementia Progression Vascular Dementia Alzheimer Disease Dementia with Lewy Body (DLB) Frontotemporal Dementia Recent Advances in Dementia Diagnosis Causes and Risk Factors Bioinformatics Approach Treatment Modalities Therapeutic Targets Clinical Trials and Drug Development Awareness and Care Practices Case Reports Posterior Cortical Atrophy Diseases associated with Dementia Neuroepigenetics Parkinson Disease Dementia To Collaborate Scientific Professionals around the World Conference Date September 24-25, 2018 For Sponsors & Exhibitors Sponsorship Opportunities Speaker Opportunity Poster Opportunity E-Poster Opportunity Supported Journals Please contact the event manager Marilyn (marilyn.b.turner(at)nyeventslist.com ) below for:- Multiple participant discounts- Price quotations or visa invitation letters- Payment by alternate channels (PayPal, check, Western Union, wire transfers etc)- Event sponsorshipsNO REFUNDS ALLOWED ON REGISTRATIONSService fees included in this listing.-----------------------------------------------------------------This event is brought to you by:Pulsus Group - NewYorkEventsListhttp://www.NyEventsList.comhttp://www.BostonEventsList.comhttp://www.SFBayEventsList.com-----------------------------------------------------------------MYL180222CEV MYL180626UPA

Annual Congress on Veterinary and Animal Health About Conference Conference Series llc Ltd welcomes you at Annual Congress on Veterinary and Animal Health from November 21-22, 2018 at Paris, France. Veterinary Conference regards each one of the individuals to go to the "Veterinary Congress" amidst November 21-22, 2018 at Paris, France which melds brief keynote presentations, speaker talks, Exhibition, Symposia, and Workshops.  Veterinary Congress 2018 is one of the Animal Health meetings which will be visited by all the prestigious veterinarian, veterinary educators, fiery inspectors, postgraduates, affiliations, business meanders under a solitary rooftop. This veterinary congress or rather all animal health meeting 2018, Veterinary events, Veterinary meetings will help in frameworks organization, B2B teaming up amidst specialists and academicians. We have dealt with various compelling veterinary events and veterinary gatherings and develop incredible relations bringing the researchers and associations together. Veterinary conferences, veterinary get-togethers and veterinary events are crucial for the essential people to think about the most basic bit of  animal body. Why to attend? With people from around the world focused on getting some answers concerning Veterinary, this is your single most obvious opportunity to accomplish the greatest accumulation of individuals from the mending focuses, Universities, bunch, etc. This Veterinary conference in 2018 will coordinate appears, disperse information, meet with recurring pattern and potential investigators and get name affirmation at this 2-day event. Broadly acclaimed speakers, the most recent frameworks, methodologies, and the most current updates in Veterinary field are indications of this conference. This Veterinary congress 2018 or rather all veterinary gatherings, veterinary events and veterinary congress will help in frameworks organization, B2B uniting amidst specialists and academicians. Target Audience: 1.      Veterinary Students, Scientists 2.      Veterinary Researchers 3.      Veterinary Faculty 4.      Medical Colleges 5.      Veterinary Associations and Societies 6.      Business Entrepreneurs 7.      Training Institutes 8.      Software making associations 9.      Manufacturing Medical Devices Companies 10.  Data Management   Scientific Session Track 1: Animal Biotechnology Animal biotechnology is an integral component of agriculture. Applicable in science and engineering, it is used for modifying living organisms. Animal and microbes have been used by humans for nutrition and development of products for consumption such as beer or bread. The existing technology today enables us to engineer animals making them suitable for maximum production. One of the early applications of biotechnology in animal science is developing method to separate cheese and other food products from milk by enzyme and microbes. Genetic engineering in conjugation with cell biology and biochemistry has developed multiple products of animal origin. Regulation of Animal Research:  The “Three Rs”:- Reduce the number of higher species (cats, dogs, primates) used. Refine tests and experiments to ensure the most humane conditions possible. Replace animals with alternative models whenever possible. Track 2: Animal Nutrition Food is material that, after ingestion by animals, is capable of being digested, absorbed and utilized. In a more general sense we use the term ‘food’ to describe edible material. Additionally, dietary supplementation with certain nutrients (e.g., arginine, glutamine, zinc, and conjugated linoleic acid) can regulate gene expression and key metabolic pathways to improve fertility, pregnancy outcome, immune function, neonatal survival and growth, feed efficiency, and meat quality. Overall, the proper balance of protein, energy, vitamins and all nutritionally important minerals in diets is needed to make a successful nutrition program that is both productive and economical. Both fundamental and applied research is required to meet this goal. A successful livestock enterprise requires a good water supply, in terms both of quantity and quality. Safe supplies of water are absolutely essential for livestock. If livestock do not drink enough safe water every day, intake of feed (roughages and concentrates) will drop, production will fall and the livestock producer will lose money. Track 3: Veterinary Microbiology This topic of discussion will also include veterinary study at micro level, microorganism included in this veterinary study, the structure of microorganisms. Extensive use of currently available vaccines, strict quarantine combined with rapid diagnostics and biosecurity, and stamping out and other containment measures seem to keep ND under control in developed countries. However, as evident from the multiple outbreaks occurring worldwide, current vaccination strategies are not fully efficacious under different environmental conditions and the development of new concepts for vaccine generation are needed. To enhance the efficacy of vaccines and to improve the immune response induced by them, investigation of innovative approaches together with the development of safe and novel strong adjuvants is necessary. Future ND vaccine systems that allow rapid development to target emerging NDV strains, and enable design of multiplexed vaccines, will have advantage over currently existing vaccines. Track 4: Infectious Diseases and Preventions in Animal There are some organisms which are harmless or helpful but in certain conditions they trigger the development of an infection. He diseases caused by germs and which may infect any part of the body are called Infectious Diseases. Some organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, animals are main cause of Infectious diseases. Infectious Diseases  includes a wide range of fields which includes research on sexually transmitted infections, Bacterial Infections, Infections caused by animals, Antiviral therapy, Antibiotics, Viral infections, Respiratory Tract Infections, Parasitic Infections Vaccines,  Infect Advanced Therapies etc. Track 5: Veterinary Medicine This topic of discussion involve medicine related to clinical examination and diagnostic which is used to investigate the alimentary canal, establishing a problem oriented approach to the diagnosis of underlying pathological conditions. Pathology of teeth and gums "Lumpy jaw", Foot and Mouth disease & Vesicular Stomatitis. Mucosal Disease / Bovine virus diarrhoea, Malignant Catarrh, ulcerative stomatitis, "Wooden Tongue", diphtheritic stomatitis, ulcerative stomatitis, proliferative stomatitis. Oesophageal obstruction, perforation, achalasia. Escherichia coli infections in animals. E. coli as a broad group of bacteria: general characteristics. E. coli as enteric pathogens : ETEC, EPEC, EHEC. Pathogenesis and requirements for virulence factors (toxins, adhesions, capsules, endotoxin). Inflammatory disease (enteritis). Types of inflammation with examples. Catarrhal, ulcerative, fibrous / haemorrhagic, proliferative. Veterinary Medicine as Clinical Trials: Treatments for humans may also be useful for treatments with animals (e.g. the BRCA1 gene found in 65% of human breast tumors is similar to the BRCA1 gene in dogs). Hyperthermia + radiation = more effective at killing tumours. Stimulation of cytokines for curing skin cancers. Track 6: Veterinary Practice It includes the practices for trials on animals, testing on them related to drugs, keeping them safe from diseases. Veterinarians play an important role in protecting animal welfare, animal health, public health as well as the environment and provide a wide range of services. The total of buildings, infrastructure, veterinarians, support personnel and necessary documentation. However, the term veterinary practice in Good Veterinary Practice is defined as any veterinary service provided by a veterinary organization. Veterinarians shall endeavor to ensure the welfare and health of the animals under their care in whichever section of the veterinary profession they work. Veterinarians shall always take into account the five freedoms2 for assessing animal welfare. When aware of violations to animal welfare legislation, veterinarians shall immediately bring this to the attention of the owner of the animal(s) and do everything within their reach to solve the problem. Veterinarians shall treat all animals in their care with respect. Track 7: Veterinary Research  Veterinary research is the study of animals, particularly their health, disease and behavior, and informs and influences a far greater proportion of our lives than many people realize. Veterinary research contributes to quality and safety throughout the whole food chain. It plays a crucial role in human medicine through comparative studies, considers diseases that can cross from animals to humans, such as rabies and BSE, and is a key part of improving animal welfare and ensuring environmental sustainability. Veterinary research is carried out by individuals with a range of scientific backgrounds, including veterinarians. Research is undertaken at institutes and universities, by industry, including pharmaceutical companies, and in veterinary practices around the country. It is funded by government, charities such as the Welcome Trust, and bodies such as the Horserace Betting Levy Board. Track 8: Veterinary Forensics There are numerous situations that qualify as animal cruelty: starvation, dehydration, untreated medical problems, failure to provide relief from extreme environmental conditions, hoarding, embedded collars, physical or sexual abuse, poisoning, and animal fighting, and so on. Physical abuse cases often have neglect as a component of the crime. Animal cruelty is basically any action or lack of action that results in unjustifiable or unnecessary suffering, illness, injury or death of an animal. It is important that veterinarians have an understanding of their animal cruelty laws to they can respond appropriately and assist the investigators and prosecutors in the potential case. Reporting suspected abuse does not mean the alleged perpetrator will be arrested – it means that an investigation will be undertaken. It takes all parties to fulfill their role in the investigation to prove and disprove possible elements of the crime. Track 9: Veterinary Surgery To impart the basic knowledge of principles of surgery. To impart practical training in anesthesia, diagnostic imaging techniques and surgery. To impart practical training in surgery, anesthesia and diagnostic imaging techniques. one impart the basic and practical knowledge of principles of large animal anesthesia and mechanism of pain. To impart the basic and practical knowledge of principles of diagnostic imaging techniques and interpretation of radiographs, ultrasonography/CT/ MRI and other imaging techniques. Track 10: Veterinary Nursing Education As the professional regulatory authority for the veterinary professions, the RCVS maintains a register of veterinary nurses. Maintaining the register includes the approval of qualifications that can lead to professional registration; these are known as license to practice qualifications. Qualifications that lead to registration can either be at Further Education (FE) or Higher Education (HE) level. The requirements for such qualifications are set out in the RCVS Registration Rules and the Standards detailed in this handbook. Track 11: Veterinary Emergency In addition to analgesia for pain control, many injured or ill animals will require analgesia to facilitate restraint, diagnostic and emergency procedures. As each animal will present with varying levels of injury or illness and be experiencing different degrees of pain, individual drug selection, and dosing to effect is essential, rather than considering a standard regimen for all patients. Painful animals may also be aggressive and chemical restraint is required to protect staff, and the patient from further (self-in­flicted or iatrogenic) injury, and to facilitate a physical examination. These animals may appear stable even with severe injury or illness (especially cuts) due to the ‘fight or fl­ight’ response. Track 12: Genetic Modified Animals The process of genetically modifying an animal usually starts with combining certain fragments of DNA together in a laboratory, known as recombinant DNA. Then it is put into the animal which can pass on the recombinant DNA to the offspring. These animals contain an additional protein from the constructed DNA needed to create the drug. Many animals are being used to produce pharmaceutical drugs, mainly milk and egg producing animals such as chicken, goats, and cows. The common way to genetically modify animals is a certain process performed in the laboratory 1.      The gene of interest is isolated on a strand of DNA. 2.      DNA is cut at specific points by restriction enzymes. The enzymes recognize certain sequences of bases on the DNA strand and cut where those sequences appear. 3.      The cut DNA joins with a vector, which may be a virus or part of a bacterial cell called a plasmid. The vector carries the gene of interest into the organism that will produce the protein. 4.      Transformation occurs when the gene carried by the vector is incorporated into the DNA of another organism where it initiates the action desired. Track 13: Poultry Product Poultry products are nutritious and add variety to the human diet. Most of the products are from chickens, but ducks and turkeys also are important sources. In developing countries, rural production systems for maintaining poultry are not far removed from conditions encountered by wild chickens and ducks. Where reliable refrigeration is not available, consumers purchase small amounts of poultry meat and eggs on a regular basis. In developed countries, commercial production systems provide large supplies of meat and eggs. The food processing industry provides meat in the form of whole carcass, cut-up parts, or further processed meat. Eggs are available as whole (shell) eggs or liquid or component parts. By products from food processing are recycled, usually by inclusion in animal feed. Track 14: Health Benefits of Pet Ownership Many people intuitively believe that they and others derive health benefits from relationships with their animal companions, and numerous scientific studies performed over the past 25 years support this belief. Among other benefits, animals have been demonstrated to improve human cardiovascular health, reduce stress, decrease loneliness and depression, and facilitate social interactions among people who choose to have pets. Additionally, many terminally ill, pregnant, or immune compromised people are urged to relinquish their animal companions due to concerns about zoonosis (diseases that may be transmitted between humans and non-human animals). Dogs can act as the perfect personal trainer, if only because most of them need to be walked several times a day. To help human health professionals and their patients decide when and in what ways a companion animal may provide assistance, this booklet reviews some important scientific studies that document the positive impacts of the human-animal bond on human health: physiologically, psychologically and socially. Track 15: Veterinary Digital Healthcare Increasingly, veterinarians are using medical imaging to diagnose their patients. There is a corresponding tendency towards replacing conventional film-screen systems with digital medical imaging systems, such as computed radiography (CR) and direct radiography (DR). With these systems, many veterinarians around the world are enjoying considerable benefits, including time savings and optimal image quality. 1.      From analog to digital: X-ray generators are used to make radiographic exposures. As the X-rays pass through the patient, the way in which they are absorbed varies depending on the density of the body tissues (bone, fat, water, air, etc.). 2.      Computed radiography gains ground: Computed radiography (CR) and direct digital radiography (DR) also use a standard X-ray generator. CR is an indirect digital imaging technology that became popular in the 1980s within the human healthcare domain. Track 16: Veterinary Healthcare and Innovation This report is the fourth annual collaboration between Health for Animals and Oxford Analytical. We have published ‘The cost of animal disease’ in 2012; ‘Emerging and re-emerging diseases’ in 2013; and ‘The growing threat of vector-borne diseases in humans and animals’ in 2014. With the publication of this new report, Health for Animals and Oxford Analytical are aiming to generate exposure around the topic of innovation in the animal health sector, among policymakers, industry, the NGO sector and the media. Innovation within the sector is vital for progress. Track 17: Wildlife Management and Veterinary Welfare Human understanding of animals – especially their sentience, needs and natures – is developing all the time. The physical states of poor welfare are more readily accessible and understandable (particularly for veterinarians, who undertook much of the early work on welfare). But new research leads naturally to greater understanding of mental states and needs and natures. This is particularly true of ethological research, including ‘preference testing’ where animals’ preferences are measured and assessed. This may be why earlier definitions of welfare centred on physical states, whereas the latest definitions have reflected the complex, multi-faceted nature of animal welfare. Concern for animal welfare has historically focused on the use of animals for farm livestock production, transport, sale and slaughter, and research, testing and teaching. In addition, legislation designed to protect animal welfare often excludes pests or pest control. Attitudes towards pests have contributed to this, with pests usually and rightly in many cases, portrayed in a negative manner. Track 18: Environmental Law And Animal Preservations Environment” is a difficult word to define. Its normal meaning relates to the surroundings, but obviously, that is a concept which is relatable to whatever object it is, which is surrounded. Environment is a polycentric and multifaceted problem affecting the human existence. Today protection of ‘environment’ is a global issue as it concerns all countries irrespective of their size, stage or development or ideology. Today, the interaction between society and nature is so extensive that the question of environment has assumed large proportions, affecting humanity at large. It is therefore, very important to understand and appreciate the importance of ‘environment’ in our daily life. It imposes a duty on every citizen ‘to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers, and wildlife’. Reference to the environment has also been made in the Directive Principles of State Policy as well as the Fundamental Rights. Today, Animal conservation has evolved into a science, but its goal remains essentially the same: to ensure the wise use and management of renewable resources. Given the right circumstances, living organisms that we call renewable resources can replenish themselves indefinitely. Conservation is the wise use of natural resources, without wasting them. Track 19: Veterinary Economics Veterinary medicine is engaged in maintaining the health of food animals and companion animals, in assuring a safe food supply, in scientific research and development (R&D), in teaching and R&D in academia, and in numerous novel activities such as government agencies (The Ohio Department of Agriculture, for example), military, zoos, and working for private firms. Most veterinarians are self-employed; nationally it is estimated that 80 percent of the veterinarians are self-employed and Ohio is not likely to be substantially different from the national number. Track 20: Entrepreneurs Investment A veterinary practice can be defined as a business for the profitable delivery of veterinary medicine. Many veterinarians are under the mistaken belief that a successful practice will come from the delivery of effective veterinary medicine. The reality is that veterinary practices, particularly those providing small animal health care, are in an extremely competitive environment whereby the veterinarian must not only be a successful animal health care provider but also a practice manager and entrepreneur (Brown & Silverman 1999; Heinke2001; Shilcock2002). Although it is not essential for veterinarians to have formal qualifications in business it is considered important they have a foundational understanding of business practices relevant to the veterinary industry (Brown & Silverman 1999; Shilcock2002). This practice management and planning knowledge will assist the veterinarian to not only make a valuable contribution as a future employee but in many cases, understand the reality of self-employment opportunities. Track 21: Animal Husbandry Animal  husbandry practice is having  varied reasons like producing food to produce a regular supply of nutrient-rich animal source food that provide a critical supplement and diversity to staple plant-based diets, generate income to meet an urgent need of cash, to provide manure so as to contribute a greater crop production for food and income , to provide traction power for transportation and crop production, to serve as financial instruments and enhance social status as an indicator of social importance within the community, (either based on the size of a family’s livestock holdings or in their sharing of livestock with others) to strengthen social bonds (including the use of livestock as dowry or bride price) . Livestock-derived food items (meat, milk and eggs) are the great contributor in the Indian economy. This sector is an integral component of Indian agriculture supporting livelihood of more than two-thirds of the rural population. There are various types of services of animals such as to provide nutrient-rich food products, draught power, dung as organic manure and domestic fuel, hides & skin, and are a regular source of cash income for rural households. Track 22: Livestock Livestock production is a form of agricultural production with many facets and the manifestation of these facets differs from one situation to another. It is obvious that livestock production by a nomad who keeps camels for milk to secure his subsistence is different from that of a peasant who raises some poultry in his farm yard for sale on the market. The different livestock species - camels, cattle, sheep, goats, equines, pigs and poultry - vary radically in their management requirements, their production and productivity and also in the products they supply and the functions they fulfill. But one and the same species may also be held for completely different purposes: On some farms cattle are kept to produce beef for sale, on others to supply clung for the fields and to provide tractive force in farm work. Track 23: Animal Vaccines Vaccination has been one of the most important interventions in disease prevention that has ever been developed. In spite of the demonstrable, and ongoing, success of vaccination, a small, but vocal, anti-vaccination movement has developed in human medicine, occasionally buttressed by horrifying instances of adverse reactions. Veterinary medicine, vaccination has also proven to be a boon for animal health. Diseases such as canine parvovirus and canine distemper, feline leukemia, or equine tetanus, have been greatly reduced – in some cases, nearly eliminated – by vaccination. And, as in human medicine, a small, but vocal, anti-vaccination movement has developed, regaling fearful listeners with tales of acute harm, or chronic, low-grade disease (sometimes termed “vaccinosis”). In spite of the success of animal vaccination, genuine questions remain as to ideal intervals for booster vaccination. That is, although the effectiveness of vaccination can be shown by reduction in disease, as well as the occasional challenge study (where vaccinated animals are exposed to disease-causing organisms to see if they are protected), no one really knows the “optimum” interval for giving boosters of most animal vaccines. Track 24: Nanotechnology in Veterinary Nanotechnology is defined as a scientific knowledge application for matter’s manipulation and control in nonmetric scale (1-100 nm). Nanostructures may present new physical and chemical characteristics, demonstrating high reactivity and solubility levels, and better stability than the original actives. Nanotechnology allows the development of new products and also the possibility of reworking conventional substances viewing better efficacy results. This technique is commonly used in Human Medicine; especially involving Nano carriers for quick and specific drug delivery into cells. In Veterinary Medicine, the use of nanoparticles composed by antimicrobials actives are being intensively tested, especially in livestock animals.
