Alzheimer’s Disease & the African-American Community Conference

February 19, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

alzheimers conference

Alzheimer’s disease does not discriminate. It affects every race, religion, education level, gender and income bracket. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports African Americans have the highest prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias for those 65 and older.

Let’s get back to the basics by learning the facts around Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. What is it? How are people affected? What is being done to stop this disease? How can I make a difference?

Come for answers to these questions and more during the free session on February 19. This two-and-a-half-hour conference is open to families, friends, caregivers, professionals and community members. Topics will include: general dementia information, panel discussion with key community members, caregiving information and resources.
