    Due to work conflicts that week at IRBMED, I am unable to attend either of the two sessions I wanted to attend (Keeping your Brain Healthy: Advances in Aging and Alzheimer’s Research AND Planning for Retirement) and I loved the one I attended last year.

    If I register, will I be able to access a recording after the completion of the conference? Please advise.

    Thank you.
