ADRD Summit 2022 Report(pdf, 3547 KB)
The ADRD Summits complement the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summits, and the National Research Summits on Care, Services, and Supports. These summits are coordinated planning efforts that respond to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease, first released in 2012 and now updated annually. The conferences set national research recommendations that reflect critical scientific priorities for research on Alzheimer's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD).
The ADRD Summit 2022 addressed research priorities for Alzheimer's disease-related dementias, including frontotemporal degeneration, Lewy body, multiple etiology dementias, and vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia along with broader cross-cutting areas, including health equity. Significant portions of the Summit were dedicated to public comment on the updated draft research recommendations that were presented. The Summit concluded with a review of the highlights from the sessions and summary of the major themes from the public comments. Based on input received at the Summit, the recommendations were revised and presented to the NINDS Council for approval. Approved recommendations become research milestones in the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease.
