2020 Safadi Lecture

September 2, 2020
Experts agree dementia with aging is an immense public health problem. The relationship of vascular pathology to cognitive impairment in aging is not known.
Several recent discoveries have clarified interactions between vascular pathology and other mechanisms of dementia. We aim to present and clarify these discoveries to help improve patient outcomes.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, geriatricians, clinical and basic neuroscience researchers, trainees, students, nurses, and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of the elderly as well as the general public.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Identify current concepts about the biologic substrate of cognitive impairment;
  • State the neurovascular mechanisms impacting various forms of dementia;
  • Discuss how to translate biologic concepts into novel testing and treatment strategies.
