The Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD) Summit 2019 takes place every three years to update national research priorities for Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, vascular dementia and mixed dementias.

The goal of the 2019 Summit is to review and assess the progress made for each of the research recommendations developed by previous summits. Draft updates to the recommendations will be presented, public comments will be solicited, and the priorities and timelines for ADRD research will be updated.

Organized by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke with collaboration across the National Institutes of Helath, the summit is held in response to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease: 2017 Update.

Research trainees are encouraged to consider applying for an ADRD Summit 2019 Trainee Travel Scholarship

Members of the LBD community who plan to attend are encouraged to also notify LBDA, by emailing Angela Taylor, ataylor@lbda.org. This will help us have an informal gathering of LBD advocates at the summit!

Registration is now open here.
