Developing a Patient-Centered Approach to Research: Introduction to Community Leaders Working on Brain Health and Dementia in the District

Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, Laura Newland, & Katie Garber

Sustained and meaningful engagement of the community – patients, family members, caregivers, advocates, clinicians, and healthcare providers – is vital throughout the research process to the long-term success of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) research.

This session will bring together community leaders in a conversation with attendees to identify areas where more research is needed to drive program development or policy change to improve the lives of those living with ADRD in the District.

A light lunch will be provided. The agenda will include time for networking and sharing with your fellow researchers. We look forward to your participation!
