Population-Level Trends in Dementia: Call for Proposals

September 16, 2016

With financial support from NIA, we seek proposals for manuscripts assessing various aspects of population level trends in dementia. The authors will present the manuscripts at a conference in the Washington DC area in May or June 2017. We anticipate that the manuscripts will be published as part of a supplemental issue of a peer-reviewed journal, and we are currently in discussions with Journals of Gerontology: Social Sciences.Four priority areas have been identified: 1. latest data on population-level trends in dementia from the US and abroad; 2. disparities in trends in dementia; 3. causes of population-level trends in dementia; 4. consequences of population-level trends in dementia for individuals, families, andsocieties.
