Join the Professional Interest Areas (PIAs) of the Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART) on Saturday, July 13, for PIA Day at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® (AAIC®). PIA Day hosts a full day of targeted scientific sessions organized by PIA leaders. Members may attend any of the PIA Day sessions or business meetings regardless of PIA membership.

Many of the PIAs will also host their annual business meeting on PIA Day, although some business meetings will take place throughout the week of AAIC. PIA business meetings are an opportunity to receive updates on activities, engage in critical conversations about issues affecting the field, network with peers from across the world and determine objectives for the upcoming year.

Interested in meeting the PIA leaders? ISTAART members are invited to hear from PIA leaders, ask questions and network throughout the week of AAIC.
