The National Alzheimer's Summit, Uniting Communities for a Cure, is the pinnacle of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s events and includes three movement-building days in Washington, D.C.
The annual Summit begins with a day-long Diversity Symposium to increase awareness, understanding, and action on Alzheimer’s disease among communities of color. The second day we bring together the very best minds in Alzheimer’s and dementia research and policy along with leaders and advocates from diverse communities impacted by the disease to develop a clear agenda for action with a focus on getting to an Alzheimer’s cure. Named after our Co-Founder, the Trish Vradenburg Out of the Shadows Dinner is held annually and honors those working to keep Alzheimer’s out of the shadows and in the national spotlight, where it belongs. The last day of the Summit, known as Hill Day, includes important meetings with Members of Congress.
