Education & Info Transfer Core

The Education Core and Information Transfer Core (EITC) coordinates educational programs for many audiences, from our own research participants and their family members, to medical students first learning about Alzheimer's disease, to residents and fellows rotating through the clinics on campus, to faculty and staff of the Indiana University, to professionals in our local community and throughout the state and beyond.  The EITC plays an important role by linking the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center to the wider community and other organizations, such as the Alzheimer's Association of Greater Indiana, the Area Agencies on Aging, and health care providers throughout the state and the region.  The success of the EITC is only possible through the involvement of the faculty and staff from all of the other IADC cores.  For example, the EITC works closely with the Clinical Core to recruit and retain participants for research and with the Administrative Core in developing and organizing the annual symposia on AD.   The EITC also publishes Reflections, the IADC newsletter, three times a year as well as other helpful information about AD and related dementia.  For more information about the work of the EITC please feel free to contact Dr. Mary Guerriero Austrom at maustrom@iupui.edu or Ms. Donna Wert at dwert@iupui.edu or call 317-963-7297.
