Join us  for the 3rd Annual Brain Health Inequities Symposium sponsored by The MIND Center at University of Mississippi Medical Center, an activity of the Brain Health Goal Group of the Alzheimer’s State Plan.  Join us for this FREE symposium and earn 1.5 contact hours. This webinar will explore brain health inequities in communities of color at macro and micro levels, and identify social determinants of health for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias that affect health outcomes.

Participants will be able to identify the connection between brain health and vascular disease with a focus on disparities in cognitive decline in people of color and medically underserved populations, and educate and empower adult clients, patients, and caregivers to implement lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
