Creating a Roadmap for Research on Mild Cognitive Impairment
Please join us for a working session to identify the priority research areas for improving the lives of people living with mild cognitive impairment. With funding from the *** Foundation, faculty from Georgia Tech and Emory, in partnership with Emory Brain Health, have developed a ground-breaking new program that combines therapeutics, technology, data science and the built environment to improve the lives of people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Set to open by the end of 2019 in Executive Park, this day program will operate as a living laboratory. Beginning in 2020 there will be $150,000 of seed grants available each year. We need your help to help frame a research roadmap for the program for the next three years that will advance the state of knowledge and accelerate the development of adaptive strategies leading fulfilling lives with MCI. 

Building on the first workshop held in the fall of 2018, we seek to include researchers from an even wider range of disciplines to join the discussion and shape the research roadmap for how we can make the most impact on the lives of people dealing with cognitive decline. Some preparatory reading material will be sent in advance of the meeting. The meeting will take place on May 30th from 9am to 1pm and lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by May 24th so that we can get an accurate head count for lunch.

How to Find Us:
The SimTigrate Design Lab is located on the Georgia Tech campus at the corner of West Peachtree and 5th Street in Technology Square. Although our address is 828 West Peachtree Street, our building is most easily accessed from the back parking lot, which is located on 5th Street across from Starbucks. Keep in mind that West Peachtree and Spring Streets, which also border the parking lot, are both one way streets.
Enter the building through the left exterior door (furthest from 5th street and facing the parking lot), and take the elevator to the 3rd floor. Turn left off the elevator, and the SimTigrate Design Lab will be at the end of the hall on the right.

Parking:
Our entrance and parking lot are on the back side of the building. Visitor parking is located directly in front of our entrance off 5th Street (across from Starbucks) with an hourly rate of $2.00. 
Additional parking is available in the garage adjacent to the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center (Technology Square Deck – off Spring Street).
