Description:

The goal of the Summit is to bring together individuals with a variety of backgrounds to identify evidence-based programs, strategies, approaches, and other research that can be used to improve the care, services, and supports of persons with dementia and their caregivers. This Summit followed the example of previous Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD) summits organized primarily by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), respectively. Each summit produces research recommendations that reflect critical scientific priorities for research. The primary anticipated outcome of the 2020 summit is to elicit recommendations for research priorities to inform federal agencies, foundations, and private sector organizations.
