The Troiani-Sweeney Endowed Fund Lecture Series at ESU was held in the Niedbala Auditorium on Thursday, October 31.

This year’s keynote address by Brad Hyman, M.D., Ph.D., was titled “Updates on Alzheimer’s Disease.”

Now in its sixth year, the Troiani-Sweeney Endowed Fund Lecture Series at ESU was developed by graduates Linda (Troiani)’83 and Sam Niedbala ’82 to honor Linda’s sister, Yvonne Troiani Sweeney’78.

Yvonne is a 1978 graduate of ESU who dedicated her life to her nursing career that spanned 30 years until she was diagnosed with a form of early onset dementia called posterior cortical atrophy.
