Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement:

At the Alzheimer's Association®, we believe that engaging diverse perspectives is critical to achieving health equity — meaning that all communities have a fair and just opportunity for early diagnosis and access to risk reduction and quality care. Underrepresented and underserved communities are disproportionately impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia, and yet are less likely to be diagnosed; less likely to be recruited to participate in research; and less likely to have access to care and support services. This is unacceptable and must change. We are leading the way by developing strategic partnerships with trusted national and local organizations to create a pathway to greater health equity, mission engagement and inclusion for everyone. We are building an organizational culture of understanding while pursuing diversity, equity and inclusion through education and policies. The Association is committed to providing all communities with resources and education to realize our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
