- Educate health professionals and the public about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias
- Conduct research investigating the causes and potential treatments for dementia among clinical and community populations.
- Advocate changes in health policy and practice that will enhance the recognition, treatment and management of dementia
- Serve as an expert referral center for the diagnosis of dementia
