National Council of Dementia Minds is pleased to co-sponsor “Let’s Talk about Dementia and Culture 2022” led by Dementia Friends Massachusetts.
National Council of Dementia Minds is pleased to be a co-sponsor of this event and especially proud that Nia Mostacero, Black Dementia Minds participant, will be one of the presenters.
Dementia affects every community, but not in the same way. Join us for a conversation about disparities, different needs, and specific strengths in many cultural and linguistic communities. Dementia educators and advocates in Black/African American, Chinese, Brazilian/Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Spanish-speaking, and Southeast Asian communities, as well as those working with people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, will share their insights and experiences. Come learn with us, as we work to raise awareness about dementia and make sure that information and support are available in all of our communities.
