Talking About Brain Health with Your Doctor
Tuesday, February 27, 12-1 p.m.
Presented by Sakina Ouedraogo Tall, MD, FACP, Clinical Assistant Professor, Geriatrics, NYU Langone Health
Black Americans are twice as likely as their white counterparts to have Alzheimer’s or another dementia, but less likely to receive a diagnosis. Additionally, many Black caregivers and people living with the disease face barriers to receiving quality care, treatment, and support. In this program, we will discuss the importance of brain health for Black Americans, how to start a conversation about memory concerns with a doctor, what to expect during a diagnostic visit, and ways to improve overall brain health.
