July 10, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
2020 National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and Their Caregivers
The National Institute on Aging (NIA), in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services as part of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA), planned to host the second National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and their Caregivers on March 24-25, 2020. The in-person event was canceled per COVID-19 physical distancing guidance. In lieu of the in-person event, the NIA is hosting a 2020 Dementia Care, Caregiving, and Services Research Summit Virtual Meeting Series in Summer 2020. This series will include research presentations, panelist remarks, moderated discussion (with live Q&A), and a presentation on the draft research gaps and opportunities. These draft gaps and opportunities, developed by the Summit Steering Committee with input from stakeholder groups and organized into six themes, are intended to identify important potential areas for future research in the fields of dementia care and caregiving.
AFTD is a sponsor of the Summit Virtual Meeting Series. The first virtual meeting will cover the welcome, setting the stage, Impact of Dementia (Theme 1), and Participation of Persons with Dementia and their Caregivers in Research (Theme 4). Registration is required.
