The CADC Program
As of 2009, the ten California Alzheimer's Disease Centers (CADCs) have evaluated and treated over 24,000 Californians and have conducted over 35,000 followup assessments.
Since their inception, the mission of the CADCs has been to
- reduce the human burden and economic cost associated with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and
- improve the quality of life for anyone affected by Alzheimer's disease.
The Institute for Health and Aging (IHA) at the University of California, San Francisco acts the coordinating site for the ten centers. It provides a comprehensive evaluation of the CADCs, conducts joint site visits with the California Department of Public Health, and coordinates and conducts an annual planning conference. These functions enable the centers to meet the needs of Californians with Alzheimer’s Disease and maintain their excellence over time.
