Since our inception, the MapHabit™ team has earned several notable achievements to be proud of, and the momentum is at an all-time high! From presenting at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) and Neurological Disorders Summit (NDS) in July, to being invited to the United Nations in September, and winning first place in the Dementia Care Coordination Challenge in October, there is plenty of news to share.
In July, MapHabit’s Co-Founders, Matt Golden and Dr. Stuart Zola, attended the 19th Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Los Angeles where they presented to some of the most prominent leaders in the Alzheimer’s and dementia community. That same month, Dr. Zola was invited to chair and present at the 5th Neurological Disorders Summit (NDS), a three-day conference that hosted medical experts from 31 countries.
At these events, MapHabit™ was well-recognized by participants as being a new, innovative company with a focus on evidence-based behavioral approaches that effectively enhance the quality of life for individuals with memory impairment and – importantly – for their caregivers as well. To read more about these experiences, take a look at our past blog.
September was also a month to remember as Co-Founder Matt Golden was invited to the United Nations to share the MapHabit™ story with the Coalition for Better Health at Lower Cost. Our team was chosen as part of a select group of leaders in business, science, research, and government to join the Coalition in brainstorming ways to provide effective healthcare options at lower costs. We were extremely grateful to receive this exciting opportunity.
In October, we were informed that MapHabit™ took First Place among 33 participants around the US in the inaugural Dementia Care Coordination Challenge and received a $250,000 prize. This challenge was the first-ever Eureka prize competition sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health.
In addition, we are extremely grateful to have received multiple research grants from the Georgia Research Alliance and National Institutes of Health which have bolstered our platform and helped to further refine our product.
We are so proud of the MapHabit™ team’s tireless research and relentless dedication. To stay up-to-date on our latest news and achievements, visit our press page!
