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. This seminar will bring together GW faculty, researchers and students to learn more about the concept of patient-centered outcomes research, including effective methods for engaging community partners and overcoming barriers. A light lunch will be provided and the agenda will include time for networking and sharing with your fellow researchers. We look forward to your participation!
