In partnership with the National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA), the Alzheimer’s Association is offering a one-hour webinar “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” on October 20.
This free webinar will examine the impact of Alzheimer’s, particularly as it affects American Indian and Alaska Native individuals. Other areas covered in the program include the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, disease stages and risk factors, current research and treatments, and information on how individuals and families affected by the disease can access Alzheimer’s Association resources. Valerie Tsosie (Navajo), an Alzheimer’s Association community educator, will lead the webinar.
The webinar is offered in conjunction with a partnership announced in July by NICOA and the Alzheimer’s Association. This important partnership is promoting brain health and awareness to American Indian and Alaska Native individuals in the NICOA network. It is also aimed at maximizing support for individuals and families in the NICOA network impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
The October 20 webinar will take place at 11 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. MT. Individuals interested in attending can register here.
