Alzheimer's Allies: Building BIPOC Community Support

Alzheimer's Allies: Building BIPOC Community Support

Alzheimer's Allies: Building BIPOC Community Support. In Alzheimer's care, BIPOC communities have unique challenges that demand dedicated allies. As we explore the impact of Alzheimer's on different cultural groups, it becomes evident that BIPOC individuals are disproportionately affected by the disease. Research indicates that certain minority populations, including African Americans and Hispanics, face a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's compared to the general population. The why behind this heightened susceptibility is multifaceted, involving a complex interplay of genetic, environmental, and social factors.

Building support within BIPOC communities becomes crucial in addressing this disparity. Our podcast conversation, "Alzheimer's Allies: Building BIPOC Community Support," explores the stories and strategies of those actively working to understand, support, and uplift individuals within these communities affected by Alzheimer's. By shedding light on the demographic most affected and exploring the unique challenges faced by minorities, we aim to foster a deeper understanding and inspire collaborative efforts toward building a more inclusive support network.

Our guest is Dr. Christopher Howard, a neuropsychologist specializing in communities of color. He utilizes cultural community outreach such as health awareness events in barbershops and churches. Dr. Howard was a regular guest sharing all kinds of brain health information so be sure to check out his previous episodes.
