About this Event

The Cognitive Empowerment Program (CEP), a joint effort between Emory University’s Brain Health Center and the Georgia Institute of Technology, officially opened in January 2020. Pre-COVID, the CEP provided a space to empower people living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Beginning in late March 2020, the program was moved to a virtual platform for the safety of the members, caretakers, staff, and researchers. To learn more about the CEP, please visit

On Friday, January 29, 2021 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM (EST) , researchers, stakeholders, staff, members, care partners and community members will meet to take stock, move forward, encourage collaboration, and synergize the center's progress. Attendees will hear from various researchers (inside and outside of the CEP) about the work they have accomplished in 2020 and what they're planning for the CEP members in 2021.

The half-day, virtual symposium will include a mix of short presentations and interactive breakouts to keep things interesting and maximize the opportunities for connecting with the program. A highlight of the morning will be a session where the members living with MCI will share how the program has positively affected their lives.

In addition, recipients of the 2020 Cognitive Empowerment Program - Innovation Accelerator seed grant program will present their research and findings via poster presentations. And the 2021 seed grant recipients will introduce their proposals. We look forward to collaborating with you!

Login instructions to Zoom will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.

NOTE: If you are registering as a CEP Member or Care Partner, select the CEP Members & Care Partners ticket type and add the names of people who will be present. If you're having any problems with the registration portal, email for assistance.
