Community Action Council
The Community Action Council at the Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center (BU ADC) is comprised of leaders from the older adult African-American community. Members are invited to present new research studies, discuss recruitment strategies, report research findings, and provide education or feedback on specific initiatives. Standing members of the council include leaders in the greater Boston African-American community, registry participants, and collaborative partners from Boston community agencies.
Through this council, the ADC has identified a number of African-American community groups, religious organizations, and other potential partners in research. This has led to the ADC's participation in community fairs, outreach events, and other activities.
