2020 NADRC Webinar:
Addressing Dementia in Indian Country: Where We Are and What Comes Next

The number of older adult American Indians and Alaska Natives is increasing, and because dementia is more common with advanced age, as this population grows so too will the impact of cognitive impairment and related caregiving. Communities are taking note of this trend and are taking action to promote brain health, improve community knowledge about dementia and discerning their approach to support caregivers. This webinar will present key background material and an American Indian leader will talk about their dementia related activities.
