The Neurocognition and Dementia in Aging Working Group and the GW Center for Aging, Health and Humanities present the second of the four-part GW University Seminar Series, Developing a Patient-Centered Approach to Research in Adult Cognitive Health and Dementia

This seminar will bring together GW faculty, researchers and students to hear from an investigator, Orla Sheehan, MBBCh, MSc, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who has successfully collaborated with community partners on several recent projects. Dr. Sheehan will discuss the nuts and bolts of implementing a patient-centered outcomes approach to conducting research, and the strengths and challenges of this method. Sustained and meaningful engagement of the community (patients, family members, caregivers, advocates, clinicians, and healthcare providers) throughout the research process is vital to the long-term success of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) research.

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!
