The next meeting of the Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care, and Services will be held on Monday, January 26, 2015 from 9:00am to 5:00pm EDT.

Please allow 30 minutes to go through security and walk to the meeting room.
The Advisory Council will hear a presentation on IOM's final expert panel on Advanced Dementia, which will provide additional recommendations for the Council to consider.

The Council will then discuss the process for developing recommendations for the 2015 update for the National Plan.
