    Meeting Theme: Diversity Equity and Inclusion

    The Fall ADRC Meeting centered on the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in ADRC research and operations, which was intended to set the stage for increased efforts network-wide to ensure equitable practices and increased representation of the communities we serve. This is a stated priority of the NIA and of our Center members.
    The DEI focus of the 2022 Fall ADRC Meeting:
    • Understanding the scientific underpinnings of potential racial and ethnic differences in the pathobiology and clinical phenotye of ADRD
    • Examining and addressing why some minoritized populations are disproportionately underdiagnosed and affected by ADRD
    • Assessing the possible relationship between lifelong social exposures and risk and resilience to ADRD
    • Diversifying the ADRC participant pool
    • Cultivating a diverse ADRC workforce
