Following introductory remarks and perspectives from the project’s sponsors, the workshop will begin with a panel discussion in which individuals with lived experience with Alzheimer’s Disease and experience caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease will offer perspectives on the impact Alzheimer’s Disease has on individuals, their families, and their communities, as well as their thoughts on how best to improve support for those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease. The workshop will also include panels on epidemiological perspectives and models of care initiatives.
Following the formal panel discussions, there will be a one-hour public comment session in which attendees may provide a brief (no longer than three minutes) statement or commentary to inform the work of the study committee. Time slots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and participation is open to those attending the workshop virtually as well as in-person attendees.
