    This workshop will explore commonalities across neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and frontotemporal dementia, and identify potential opportunities for collaboration across the respective research and development communities
  • Nutrition and Healthy Aging in the Community: A Workshop Date: October 5, 2011 - October 6, 2011 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    Recent trends reveal that growing numbers of older adults now seek to live independently in the community setting. This shift creates new challenges for the older people, their caregivers, and social services and nutrition professionals who seek to assure the availability of nutrition and other services for this population. Nutrition needs are not always understood and nutrition services are fragmented and poorly integrated with other services. Coverage and reimbursement for such services also remain serious limitations, thus increasing the possibility that older persons requiring services fall through gaps in this tenuous service net. A better understanding of the issues is needed.
