NCCIH Webinar on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias in Indigenous Populations
Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are an emerging health issue in Indigenous populations, particularly as they are an aging population and experience complex health conditions that place them at greater risk for this disease. This webinar is being held on World Alzheimer's Awareness Day and will highlight how First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals are impacted by Alzheimer's or related dementias, either by experiencing these diseases themselves or caring for family and community members with these diseases. The webinar brings together speakers who will discuss current research, action and programming on Indigenous strategies and culturally-responsive approaches to support Indigenous people experiencing Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and their caregivers both within Canada and internationally.
