North Carolina ADRCs, Duke-UNC ADRC and Wake Forest ADRC, gathered together on February 14, 2023, for the first ADRC NC Summit. Core leaders from each of the centers came together to share ideas and develop future partnerships between the two NC Alzheimer’s centers. Dr. Heather Whitson, Duke-UNC ADRC co-director described the importance of such an event: “This meeting really crystallized the extraordinary collaborative potential here. WFU ADRC and Duke/UNC ADRC are highly aligned in terms of vision, culture, and mission, yet we bring different and complementary sets of resources to the fight against ADRC. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than strengthening science and relationships with our “sister Center”?”
Dr. Marianne Chanti-Ketterl had great conversations about Alzheimer’s disease research with UNC-Pembroke students and staff at the Part-time Job & Volunteer Fair on January 11 at the UNCP Student Center.
She met up with Victoria Huggins, advocate for Alzheimer’s disease awareness, journalist, former Miss North Carolina, and member of the Outreach, Recruitment and Engagement Core’s Community Leader Advisory Board – CoLAB (pictured).
Heather Whitson, MD, MHS, Aging Center Director, was interviewed this week on Newsy’s program “The Why” discussing healthy longevity and health pitfalls to avoid on the road to a long life.
