Brain Info Live℠

A new community outreach series helps to address health disparities and equity for people living with Alzheimer’s. Working collaboratively with local community leaders and partners, this exciting new educational campaign includes culturally tailored information and resources to reach a diverse audience.

Our hope is to generate an ongoing dialogue to build trust and support between community members, families, clinicians, researchers, and other health professionals.
