Webinar Series: Innovation and Hope: Building Momentum to Address Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias
A partnership between Grantmakers In Aging and the Helen Daniels Bader Alzheimer’s & Health Aging Speaker Series
Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are of deep concern to older people, families, aging service providers, policymakers, and of course, grantmakers. Despite the fear and stigma related to these diseases, there is a groundswell of innovation generating new approaches to dementia care, research, and policy. This webinar series, supported by Bader Philanthropies, will gather the nation’s leading thinkers, funders, and implementers to provide an up-to-the-minute, comprehensive look at the community, program, policy, and scientific responses to this global public health challenge.
