Join us for a caregiver education program on the impact of dementia on Black Americans and other communities of color. Black Americans are at twice the risk of dementia as their white counterparts, but less likely to receive a diagnosis. Experts will discuss risk factors, early signs and symptoms, caregiving and other topics related to dementia.
