Episode 5: Cultural Disparities
Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias affect individuals of all backgrounds; however, some ethnic groups are disproportionately impacted. This episode will discuss these cultural disparities, reasons why certain groups face higher risk of developing dementia, impediments to diagnosis and care that different groups face, and ways to break down these barriers.
