Disparities in Dementia Care with Dr. Hill
Alzheimer’s and other dementia disproportionately affect older Black and Hispanic Americans compared to older Whites, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Dr. Carl V. Hill, chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer for the Alzheimer’s Association, will join us to discuss how recent research ties poor social determinants of health and health equity issues to disproportionate rates of dementia in minority populations.
Join AARP Virginia and Insight Memory Care Center in-person in Fairfax, or online, as we learn more about the importance of diverse perspectives and participants in Alzheimer’s disease research – and what comes next to foster more inclusive research.
This hybrid session will be offered in-person in Fairfax and online for virtual participation. Please select your preferred option when registering.
