UsAgainstAlzheimer's Center for Brain Health Equity

A hub for mobilizing health providers and communities to build brain health equity for women and people of color.

Centering Equity and Data-Driven Strategies to Promote Brain Health 

Alzheimer’s disease disproportionately affects Latinos, Black Americans, and women. As our nation ages and becomes more diverse, we must accelerate efforts to promote brain health across the lifespan through culturally tailored, data-driven public health strategies and partnerships.

The UsAgainstAlzheimer's Center for Brain Health Equity is a hub for collaboration focused on:

  • Educating and mobilizing minority serving health providers
  • Making culturally tailored brain health messaging and resources accessible to communities of color 
  • Empowering community partners and policymakers with public health data on brain health inequities

We do this work in partnership and collaboration with: 

Our work is made possible by a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Healthy Brain Initiative.

Dementia is NOT a normal part of aging and there’s a lot of information out there that is confusing or misleading. The Center for Brain Health Equity works to create materials that are relevant and fact-based for our intended Latino and Black audiences.
