NIA-Alzheimer's Association Meeting on Alzheimer's Disease Prevalence

Thursday, March 19, 2009 to Friday, March 20, 2009

The three major goals of the meeting were: (1) to review the major projects that have produced national prevalence figures and to review other recent research efforts focusing on diagnostic approaches that may shed some light on why national prevalence figures for AD differ; (2) to review trends data in the prevalence of dementia and AD; and (3) to consider the utility of using computer and web-based technology to facilitate case ascertainment in population-based studies of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)/ Cognitive Impairment no Dementia(CIND)/ AD/ dementia.
