Register to attend this event on March 16, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. CT. During this event, participants will hear from Katie Brandt who was a caregiver to her husband who was diagnosed at 29 with Frontotemporal Degeneration and for her father who is living with Alzheimer’s Disease. We will also hear a conversation between Jason Resendez, the Executive Director of the UsAgainstAlzheimer’s Center for Brain Health Equity and Daisy Duarte who is a family caregiver, clinical trial participant, and advocate for the representation of Latinos in dementia research. We will also have a panel who will share findings from a project to understand how COVID-19 has impacted dementia care and the experiences of families living with dementia. Discussions will center around disparities for minority populations with a focus on Latinx communities.
