Hopkins’ Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease & Services (HEADS) Center is pleased to issue a call for the 2021 Virtual Summer Workshop for Early Stage Investigators. Please circulate within your networks and to anyone of interest.
Using the National Health and Aging Trends Study & National Study of Caregiving in Dementia Research Related to Family and Unpaid Care
Part 1: July 20–22, 2021 (Half Days)
Part 2: Two Days Fall 2021 (Half Days, Dates and Times, TBD)
Applications Due March 15, 2021
The Hopkins’ Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease & Services (HEADS) Center stimulates and coalesces population-based research that identifies, quantifies, and addresses economic and care systems challenges posed by Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). The 2021 Virtual HEADS Summer Workshop will convene early-stage scientists who are designing studies relating to family and unpaid caregiving to persons with dementia that involve the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS) and/or its National Study of Caregiving (NSOC) platform with a focus on advancing developing funding proposals for external funding and analyses for peer-review publication.
Post-doctoral research fellows and junior faculty who meet the criteria of Early Stage Investigators and are committed to building a research career related to ADRD are invited to submit applications to participate in the Summer Workshop. The selection of applications will prioritize studies that address the Center’s two themes:
(1) To identify and quantify the range of care needs of persons with ADRD and the economic consequences of ADRD for patients and families.
(2) To examine how the organization, financing, and delivery of services affects accessibility, affordability, quality, and equity of ADRD care.
The HEADS Center and its Summer Workshop are made possible through an award by the National Institute on Aging (P30AG066587).
