Thanks to improvement in treatment, people with HIV are living longer than ever before. However, people living with HIV are at increased risk for cognitive (thinking) problems. Therefore, it is especially important for people living with HIV to take care of their brains.   

This program is designed to: 

  1. Help raise awareness in people living with HIV about their risk of cognitive changes as they age and how to live a brain-healthly life.
  2. Help clinicians working in the field of HIV become more dementia-competent and know how to best support people with HIV with cognitive changes.
  3. Help clinicians accurately diagnose cognitive changes in people living with HIV.

This program is run in conjunction with the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (MADRC) and funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
