Susan Scanland presented "True Wealth with Memory Health" in our bank's retirement lecture series. Her presentation focused on the many factors that can affect memory such as medical conditions, diet, exercise, weight and lifestyle. Susan is absolutely superb in conveying the overall message, in her presentation skills and, in knowledge of subject. She is congenial, professional and top-notch! Our bank's CEO and management team were extremely pleased with her seminar presentation. Susan will amaze you with her consideration, responsiveness, expertise and professionalism. Your seminar will receive rave reviews from customers and they, in turn, will appreciate what your bank has given them. It is a win-win situation!
Susan Scanland presented me with a lot of options to look into for the cause of my dad's disease. I'm truly thankful for her insight! Maybe we can finally get some answers. Thanks!

Thanks for the crash course in dementia. I wish I had it six months ago.
I found Susan's presentation to be informative and very interesting at the same time. She gave me a better understanding of Alzheimer'sdisease. And I look forward to learning more!
Susan Scanland answered questions about my husband's Alzheimer's medications that my husband's specialist never did. I was very anxious about giving these medications...she knows exactly how Namenda, Exelon, Aricept and Razadyne work. I knew nothing about these medicines before her seminar, I would drive halfway across Pennsylvania just to hear Susan Scanland speak...SUSAN WAS TRULY THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYERS!

Susan spoke for our continuing education business, Partners in Health Care, in 2008. Her vast knowledge and national expertise in dementia enabled us to use the latest research in our series of national presentations on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's dementia.

Susan, you are a star! What a nice job you did on both radio shows in Providence RI and Phoenix AZ. Great information in a relaxed, articulate manner. You make me proud to be a fellow colleague of yours!

I wanted to thank you for the information that you provided on "Preventing Adverse Drug Reactions in the Elderly". The information that you provided was timely and helpful, and I have already been able to integrate it into my practice and share with my peers.
I live in a small, rural town in PA. no experts around here. Susan educated my friends and I thoroughly about Alzheimer's disease, which is what my dear female friend is afflicted with. I wasn't even aware there were treatments to slow down the progression of the illness. Thank you, Susan for giving us direction with this challenge in our lives.

Excellent! Susan's experience is quite evident; she offers easy to listen to, good information. She's very knowledgeable, what a fabulous, engaging speaker!
Susan Scanland was an outstanding source of knowledge and support as my mother went from early symptoms through the diagnosis of fronto-temporal dementia. My wife's father has both vascular and Lewy body dementia, so we've been hammered on both sides.
