2018 Pilot Awards for Global Brain Health Leaders (GBHI)

Brain Health Promotion and Dementia Prevention among Bay Area Latinos

Alissa Bernstein, Ph.D., MPH
Global Brain Health Institute and UCSF
San Francisco, CA - United States

Dr. Bernstein’s project will add to our knowledge of culturally and socially-relevant strategies for brain health promotion. Her work will focus on dementia prevention interventions to improve brain health literacy and behaviors in the Latino population. This pilot study will use a qualitative approach based on the study of a culture to explore brain health education and dementia prevention among vulnerable Latinos in the San Francisco Bay Area. Insights gained from this project will provide a framework for prevention interventions that could be used in future projects.
