Mary S. Mittelman is Research Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine. She is an epidemiologist who has been developing and evaluating psychosocial interventions for people with cognitive impairment and their family members for more than two decades. For more than 20 years she was Principal Investigator of the NIH-funded study of the NYU Caregiver Intervention (NYUCI), the results of which have been published widely. The NYUCI has won many awards, including the first global award for Alzheimer’s psychosocial research from Alzheimer’s Disease International/ Fondation Mederic Alzheimer. She and her colleagues have developed online training for social service professionals as well as a telehealth version of the NYUCI. In the past decade, Dr Mittelman has also been evaluating and developing interventions that include the person with dementia together with the caregiver, and is the founder of a chorus for people with dementia with their family members that named themselves the Unforgettables and rehearses and gives regular concerts at Saint Peter's Church in Manhattan.
