In addition to this community listening session, Dr. Carl V. Hill will share information from a recently released Alzheimer's Association 2021 Facts anad Figures report that examined racial and ethnic attitudes on Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care. The report shares compelling insights on how Black Americans view Alzheimer's disease, medical research and barriers faced when accessing dementia care.
Attendance at this event by residents from around Mecklenburg County is key for our organization to learn how we can better support members of the Black community living with the disease and their caregivers.
