Working with an EAC
Each ADRC is required to have an external advisory committee (EAC) that meets annually to review the Center’s progress toward its stated goals. The committee’s charge is to evaluate the Center’s programs, research progress, communications, interactions with NACC, and other activities for which outside expertise is required or desirable.
In 2017, NIA formed an ad-hoc committee (John C. Morris, MD, Chair) to provide guidance on how an EAC should be organized and how it should conduct its work. The committee’s recommendations (see links above) may be useful to ADRCs not only in conducting an EAC visit, but also in preparing their NIA progress reports.
