Our approach—listen, learn, act—means the point of view of the people most affected by neurodegenerative diseases comes first in everything we do.

We talk to and learn from people living with these diseases and their loved ones and caregivers. Grants and investments are made in response to what we hear.

Demonstration Projects

Adira is investing in several demonstration projects—these are evolving and changing as we partner, grow and change.
