Type: Virtual Meeting
Register & RSVP: Real Talk Series
Dementia/Alzheimer’s is yet another health challenge high on the list of the community health challenges for the African American communities around the nation. The same issues of access, awareness, equity, equality, and compassionate care shape treatment and caregiving. This presentation is targeted for this community but as the disease is global so we invite all to attend from wherever in the world they are.
“REAL TALK”- Dementia/Alzheimer’s began as a vision of LaVern Tarkington Ed. D. & Grace Wright, Ed. D, members of First Institutional Baptist Church as a possible way to share their personal challenges and experiences as caregivers with fellow congregants and their community in a helpful and supportive manner. They gathered a team of clinical, spiritual and community resources (Banner Alz, FIBC H.E.L.P.S. Ministry, and FIBCO Family Services, Inc., respectively) to bring their vision to life. Real Talk is designed and presented as an interactive series of shared experiences and expert presentations about the challenges and impact of Dementias/Alzheimer’s that affect so many in the Black/Brown, and other underserved communities, who might not otherwise have access to such educational/informational support.
