Learn what experts know about the experience of dementia in diverse populations, and hear about research to better understand and improve outcomes for people with dementia and their caregivers during a free webinar July 24.

The webinar, titled “Diverse Populations, Health Disparities, and Dementia,” is the third in a series co-hosted by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Speakers will focus on American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian; African-American; Hispanic/Latino; Asian/Pacific Islander; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people with dementia and their family caregivers.

The NIA/ACL webinar series seeks to improve coordination of Federal resources available to assist people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their family caregivers, and to encourage awareness of research participation opportunities.

Visit the ACL website to register for the July 24 event or future webinars, including “Younger Onset Dementia” (August 20) and “Advanced Stage Dementia and Palliative Care” (September 25).
