May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Click here to register

In American society, our most vulnerable populations are at a greater risk for morbidity and mortality. This phenomenon is the same for dementia. This live, interactive workshop aims to look at the following three modifiable health factors:
  1. Social determinants of health
  2. Barriers to care
  3. The impact of health disparities for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias
We will look at how they impact dementia in different communities, and learn about what culture broadly means in America. We aim to understand the different cultures individuals can belong to and how those identities impact the rate of Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.
Additionally, we will use case studies to explore how different kinds of interventions can aid in assisting specific population health. Our goal for the case studies is to examine how these interventions focus on either social determinant of health, barriers to care and health disparities and how they incorporate the community into the health process. 
Finally, we will discuss the importance of cultural competence in care and culturally awareness in the creation of macro-level interventions to ensure inclusivity and reduce society-level inequalities.
This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions, case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session at the end.

A complete course description, including objectives, agenda, speaker bio and cancellation policy, is available here.

2 continuing education (CE) hours from the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) and the New York State Education Department are available for licensed social workers. 2 CE contact hours are available for CCMC board certified case managers.
