Multicultural Education Program Series Calendar

In an effort to promote Alzheimer’s education that is culturally sensitive to minorities and diverse communities, the Alzheimer’s Association has designed a Multicultural Education Program Series. Some of these programs are offered in Spanish and focus on Latinos, African Americans, Asians/Pacific Islanders, American Indians and other groups.

Registration is required. Unless otherwise indicated, all programs are offered free of charge.

Course Descriptions

Understanding Memory Loss and Dementia
Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. Learn the differences between Alzheimer's, other dementias and normal memory loss due to aging. Learn about the Alzheimer's disease process, the programs offered by the Alzheimer’s Association and the community resources available.

Memory Loss and Diabetes: Is there a link?
Latinos and African Americans have the highest incidence of diabetes. If you have Type II diabetes, are at risk of developing it, or know someone who has it, this session is for you. Learn about the importance of good brain health in an effort to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s. 

Memory Loss and Heart Disease: Is there a link?
Latinos and African Americans have very high incidences of heart disease (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke), and research has shown there is a connection between heart disease and Alzheimer’s. If you suffer from high blood pressure or high cholesterol or are at risk for these, then this program is for you. Learn more about keeping your heart and brain healthy. 

Caregiving Tips: Successful Communication
The ability to communicate effectively with your loved one can make your job as a caregiver easier and increase the quality of life and safety for the person with dementia. This class covers successful communication skills for interacting with people with dementia.
