Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias disproportionately affect women, African Americans and Latinos. Women are twice as likely to develop the disease as men. Twenty percent of Americans living with the disease are African Americans and Latinos are 1.5 times more likely to be diagnosed than are non-Latino whites. It is important for professionals in the aging sector to understand the disparities that exist among these subsets of the population. Join this webinar to learn more on this topic from a guest speaker with UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, who will discuss how communities and healthcare systems can work together to promote brain health equity for all communities, including healthcare system readiness, improved access to research and preventive health services.
