GIVE TO THE DALLAS AGING & COGNITION CONFERENCE

WE NEED YOUR HELP! SUPPORT A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE BY GIVING TO THE DALLAS AGING COGNITION CONFERENCE

The Dallas Aging & Cognition Conference (DACC) is a biennial conference attended by approximately 200 researchers from across the United States as well as by various international research groups. The scientists are focused on the cognitive neuroscience of aging. They gather to share their latest discoveries and insights through invited and submitted platform talks and poster presentations. The next DACC will be held January 26-28, 2019 at the Dallas Marriott City Center. This year’s program features a number of acclaimed researchers, and the audience consists of neuroscientists, neurologists, bioengineers, psychologists, psychiatrists and more.

Your institutional support helps CVL showcase its research, and bring Center scientists international exposure. The conference has also played a pivotal role in helping the Center recruit new student trainees and faculty to Dallas. Help us burnish the Center’s national image by supporting this two-day conference in which a distinguished line up of internationally recognized speakers address advances that change the way we think about the aging mind, and present new directions in interventions to slow the way the mind ages.

SPONSOR A STUDENT $500

The Center for Vital Longevity (CVL) has been pleased to offer a limited number of merit-based travel awards sponsored by a previous gift. These awards have allowed graduate and post-doctoral students to attend the CVL-led biennial Dallas Aging and Cognition Conference (DACC). The 6th DACC will take place January 26 – 28, 2019 at the Dallas Marriott City Center and has become a must-attend conference for young scientists in the field. Travel awards cover the $50 registration and provide a $450 travel stipend for recipients. The students have the opportunity to present their work and meet the leading scientists from across the world. They develop a network of colleagues and potential employers that is the foundation for their career. Please support a young scientist by donating funds for one or more travel awards. Our goal is 25 awards.

Consider donating to cover the travel-related expenses of talented students and researchers who might otherwise not be able to attend DACC. Your contribution of $500 will allow one additional student or trainee to attend the conference and help them advance their scientific careers while learning from renowned researchers in the field, including Dr. Lars Nyberg of Umea University, who will deliver the 2019 keynote “Successful Memory and Aging – What is the Evidence?”
