Alzheimer’s disproportionately impacts certain populations. Older Black/African-Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias as older whites, and Hispanic/Latinos are about one and one-half times as likely to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias as older whites. Health equity can be achieved when people have resources to protect their health and well-being. However, social determinants of health can lead to differences in the access of quality of care, access to treatment, and higher rates of disease and death for these and other populations. The COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent vaccine rollout have shined an even brighter light on the need for more work to be done across the public health spectrum. Join the Alzheimer’s Association as they talk with some of the nation’s leading scientists and experts about the latest in health equity research focused on Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. Alzheimer’s Association Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Carl V. Hill, PhD, MPH, will speak and moderate.
