Elected Board


Alzheimer's Disease International has a council made up of representatives from each full member association. The council meets once a year during our annual international conference.

The council elects a board of people from around the world, led by our chairman, Glenn Rees. Our president is Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, who cared for her mother Rita Hayworth. A full list of our elected board members and honorary vice presidents is below.

ADI also has a medical and scientific advisory panel (known as MSAP), whose role is to provide expert advice when necessary, and also to act as international ambassadors for ADI. More details and a list of MSAP members are available.
