Join UsAgainstAlzheimer’s for a briefing on the role of “place”–where people live, work, and play–on brain health and the importance of public health in addressing the impact of Alzheimer’s on communities of color. Experts will present new data on the congressional districts most impacted by Alzheimer’s, policy recommendations for narrowing disparities, and tailored resources to promote brain health nationally and in communities. An issue brief on this topic will be released the same day as the briefing.
