Inaugural ADACC Network Annual Conference

April 29-30, 2024

Graylyn Estate and Conference Center Winston-Salem, NC

About the Conference

The Alzheimer’s Diagnosis in older Adults with Chronic Conditions (ADACC) Network is a broad
group of multidisciplinary stakeholders focused on developing evidence-based strategies for the use
and implementation of Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers among older adults with cognitive impairment
and multiple chronic conditions at the population level. Funded by the National Institutes on Aging
and developed in collaboration with NIA scientists, the ADACC Network brings together important
data from several existing observational and real-world cohorts, awards annual pilot projects to
further the science in this field, convenes working groups to address specific questions, and will host
an annual conference to enhance discussion and to develop best-practice guidelines.

The purpose of the ADACC Annual Conference in 2024 is to formally establish the scientific
objectives of the network with our existing collaborators, to provide information on the current state of
the science with regard to biomarkers, discuss work already underway, and gather input from key
stakeholders on needs in the field to prioritize and address over the next few years.
