The National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC) is hosting a webinar on addressing health disparities in people living with dementia. This webinar will include an overview of the United Family Caregivers project in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and lessons learned from the project. Presenters will also discuss best practices when working in cross-cultural environments with African American caregivers. Dr. Lisa Barnes’ portion of the presentation will focus on disparities in Alzheimer’s dementia and cognitive impairment as it relates to African Americans. She will discuss some of the most widely cited reasons for the disparities and describe findings on risk factors for cognitive decline from her cohort study, the Minority Aging Research Study.
