To address the underrepresentation of African Americans and Latinos in all aspects of neurological research, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s has launched a multi-pronged engagement strategy to build a national network of diverse researchers, patients, caregivers and stakeholder groups for collaboration and knowledge sharing around barriers, facilitators and priorities in Alzheimer’s research. The project aims to foster effective and inclusive community engagement and collaboration strategies.
Benefits of Network Membership (at no cost to you or your institution):
Invited to inform and attend periodic network-specific networking meetings, webinars, and conferences.
Access to a national network of stakeholders engaged in developing Alzheimer’s and dementia outreach, research, and programming initiatives focused on communities of color.
Access to policy updates and issues briefings related to Alzheimer’s and dementia issues provided by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s expert policy staff and leaders in the fields of minority health, community-based participatory research, brain health, and related areas.
Opportunities to co-develop and/or participate in joint communications and digital actions around key Alzheimer’s and dementia related issues and events (e.g. key legislation, minority health month, etc.).
Provided opportunities to share your work, research, and priorities among UsAgainstAlzheimer’s diverse network partners, including policymakers, researchers, community leaders, and industry partners.
The project is partially funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (4192-USAA).
