This important meeting will bring together researchers, implementers, and government thought-leaders to explore the state of translation of evidence-based interventions to help individuals with Alzheimer’s disease remain healthy and independent longer—whether at home or in the community—while also reducing stress on family caregivers. A series of expert panels will explore successful models that have been brought to scale and how they are tied to payment sources, discuss models that did not translate well, and identify gaps in the research.

Kathy Greenlee, Administration for Community Living and Assistant Secretary for Aging
