This workshop is dedicated to bringing together scholars to explore why understandings of the social impacts of post-socialist transition diverge so sharply from one another and to launch an interdisciplinary dialogue that may result in a new consensus to inform policy for the future.

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.
On May 14 and 15, 2020, The University of Utah’s Asia Center and Department of Sociology will sponsor a mini-conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, for social scientists researching migration and immigrant incorporation in Asia and overseas Asian populations. Through this conference we seek to advance knowledge in the field by bringing together communities of scholars, such as Demographers, Sociologist members of ASA’s Asia and Asian America Section and the Section on International Migration, as well as international scholars in the Asian Population Association and other professional communities.
