Part Five: Supporting Clinicians to Promote Brain Health Equity in Older Latinos

Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 3:00 pm ET

With the dramatic growth of the Latino older adult population, Alzheimer’s poses a serious threat to the health and economic well-being of the Latino community. In fact, by 2030, nearly 40% of Americans living with Alzheimer's will be Latino or African American. This webinar will provide an overview of the latest science related to health disparities in Alzheimer’s impacting Latino families, including lagging detection and inaccessible research. Health and advocacy experts will discuss opportunities for promoting culturally tailored brain health education in communities and in healthcare practices. The webinar will culminate in a call to action related to filling brain health knowledge gaps among Latino-serving providers who work on the frontlines of the growing Alzheimer’s crisis in underserved communities.

Presented by: 

  • Adriana Perez, PhD, CRNP, ANP-BC, FAAN, FGSA, Assistant Professor of Nursing and Senior Fellow, Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing
  • Jason Resendez, BA Executive Director, LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s Coalition, convened by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s.
