WAI researchers share updates at AAIC 2020

Researchers from the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute, Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health shared research at the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC), held virtually July 27 to 31.

Art Walaszek, MD, presented findings from his research team’s work developing a training method for caregivers to identify dementia in people with intellectual disabilities. Alzheimer’s disease is pervasive in people with intellectual disabilities, particularly people with Down Syndrome, however, can be difficult to diagnosis in people with intellectual disabilities.

Kimberly Mueller, PhD, presented findings from her study’s team research in the role of social engagement and performance on speech and language tests.
