Congratulations Dr. Turner!

Winner of the 2021 Excellence in Memory Care Award

Each fall, Insight Memory Care Center honors an individual or organization that is making a positive impact on memory care in our community. We are proud to announce that the winner of this year’s award is R. Scott Turner, MD, PhD!



Dr. Turner is the Vice Chair for Clinical Research, Professor of Neurology, and Director of the Memory Disorders Program at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Principal Investigator at Re:Cognition Health USA. He is the go-to for dementia-related research in the DC metro area. He can also take medical information and make it accessible to caregivers, while also amplifying the experience of families with dementia in the community.

When presented with the award, Dr. Turner shared:

I’m happy to accept this award on behalf of everyone in the Memory Disorders Program. We’re working very hard here to provide excellent clinical care, provide educational opportunities for healthcare professionals, and we provide research opportunities for people in early stages of Alzheimer’s disease dementia – we’re even doing prevention trials now to see if we can prevent Alzheimer’s disease!

Dr. Turner provides a broad range of diagnostic, management, and treatment services to people with Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders associated with aging. He is committed to providing the best clinical quality and the best customer experience in mental health diagnostic and treatment services for the benefit of his patients and families. 

He is also generous with his time and expertise. Contributing to Alzheimer’s and dementia research and care through UsAgainst Alzheimer’s, Alzheimer’s Association of the National Capital Area, Northern Virginia Dementia Care Consortium’s Caregiver Conference, and Insight’s Caregiver Bootcamp, to name a few, Dr. Turner is truly making a positive impact on memory care in our community – and beyond! Thank you Dr. Turner for all you do!
