: Free 

African Americans are twice as likely as other racial groups to have Alzheimer’s disease, and 40% less likely to be properly diagnosed and treated. This program will explore the reasons behind these statistics, offer information about normal changes in memory as we age, and cover the warning signs of Alzheimer’s as well as the steps to take for proper diagnosis and treatment.

This program is 1.5 hours, which includes time for questions and answers.
