Organized by NINR and its partners, the Summit will be held on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland August 7–8, 2017.
Ms. Judy Woodruff, Anchor and Managing Editor of the PBS NewsHour will present the keynote address at the Summit on August 7. Woodruff’s experience caring for her oldest son has led to her dedication to raising awareness of the critical role of caregivers in our society.
The Summit will provide perspectives across the spectrum of caregiving, including the importance of caregiving across the lifespan as well as current and future directions for research to improve the health of patients and caregivers.
Ms. Gail Gibson Hunt, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Caregiving, and Dr. Laura Gitlin, founding Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Innovative Care in Aging and Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, will serve as the Directors of Ceremonies at the Summit.
