30th Annual Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference
November 15, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm$25 – $175
The “30th Annual Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference” (MC72), scheduled to take place Friday, November 15, 2013 at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel, is the nation’s longest running scientific meeting devoted to exploring the latest research findings related to schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Each year, internationally recognized experts provide comprehensive reviews of advances in their areas and emphasize the clinical relevance of the research. This year’s meeting will cover a range of topics, including studies of children and adolescents who may turn out to have psychotic disorders in later life, problems with cognitive impairments and how these can impact day to day functioning in schizophrenia, and the role that viruses and infections may play in schizophrenia. A presentation by the faculty awardee of the 2013 Gerard Hogarty Research Excellence Prize focusing on the treatment of cognitive impairments in schizophrenia will also take place during the meeting. In addition, there will be a panel of persons with schizophrenia, their family members, and others addressing the issues of symptom management, staying the course, hope, resilience and recovery.
