MEETING THEME: DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
The Fall ADRC Meeting will center on the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in ADRC research and operations, which is 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.

We hope this meeting will help further focus our efforts on:

  • Understanding the scientific underpinnings of potential racial and ethnic differences in the pathobiology and clinical phenotype 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

DEI LANGUAGE GUIDELINES: view here
Several session presentations are planned that revolve around issues pertaining to DEI. To this end, the Executive Committee, in partnership with the ORE Core Steering Committee, and NACC, is providing a few suggested language guidelines for our presentations and discussions, which are in line with the latest recommendations regarding the use of “race” and “ethnicity” in scientific contexts.

HYBRID EVENT PLATFORM
