Postby Juliegee » Wed Apr 29, 2015 9:18 am

Please join us for our first ever ApoE4.Info Meet-up, May 27-28, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since most of us learned about our APOE ε4 status, we've been on a hunt for answers on how to best prevent both Alzheimer's and heart disease. We're taking our search to some of top experts in both the fields of neurology and cardiology. This is an amazing opportunity to meet and spend time with these researchers and clinicians who are hard at work on the APOE ε4 puzzle. Below is our itinerary. Please RSVP so that we can let each venue know how many to expect:

I'm so excited that we gave such a great group. I know others have expressed an interest, so please don't forget to RSVP here.

I'm getting some emails about setting up some group meals and adding those to our itinerary. I love the idea. Spending time with everyone is as important to me as meeting with our amazing presenters.

How about if following our meeting with Dr. Krauss, we caravan over to the uber-healthy Mission Heirloom Garden Cafe in Berkley @ 5PM? (I think they're geographically quite close.) That would give us a terrific opportunity to spend quality time with one another- especially the folks not staying in our commune.

Perhaps following the Gladstone Institute meeting we could trek over to the Pier 39 area (geographically less than 4 miles away) and eat somewhere there. I even like the fresh seafood sold from vendors on the pier, but would love restaurant suggestions. IMO, no trip to San Fransisco is complete without taking in the amazing energy from that area. The quintessential sea lions, shops (Ghiradeli Square) and scenery are a must-see.

Please share your ideas so I can make additions to our itinerary.

Hey Julie,

So you have an accurate count. Though they haven't responded here yet, both rep & karelena have responded to me recently confirming they are coming to participate in everything and staying at the house with their husbands. karelena said they are leaving Thursday evening.

Thank you again for all your work in putting this awesome opportunity together!!

My father and I will definitely attend the Buck events. I live in San Diego and am working on making arrangements for my kids and husband while I'm gone. If I can make it work, I would stay longer and attend Dr. Krauss and Gladstone too. But I don't know for sure yet and will keep you posted. Phenomenal itinerary...
