AFRICAN-AMERICAN ALZHEIMER'S
AWARENESS & BRAIN HEALTH INITIATIVE

A UNIVERSITY-COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

Mission Statement

Minority and economically disadvantaged seniors are at greater risk for Alzheimer’s disease, due to environmental, lifestyle and behavioral factors. In collaboration with local community organizations, we are developing educational and memory fitness programs to promote memory health, cognitive vitality, and a better understanding of Alzheimer’s disease among seniors in Greater Newark.
