About this Event

Advance registration to attend in person is strongly encouraged.

The National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and their Caregivers will be held on Tuesday, March 24 and Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. 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.

What types of research are still needed to understand the impact of dementia and improve the care, services, and supports of persons with dementia and their caregivers? This summit differs from other Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias summits as it is focused on research to improve the quality of care and outcomes across care settings, including the lived experience of persons with dementia and their caregivers, rather than on biomedical research or pharmacological interventions. The summit provides an opportunity for individuals to share perspectives about critical scientific gaps and opportunities for research. Through the 2020 summit, NIA will gather input to help inform federal agencies, foundations, and private sector organizations.

Those planning to join via videocast may also register, although it is not required.
