How Educational Inequities in the U.S. South Pre- and Post-Brown Shape Dementia Risk for Black and White Older Adults
May 3, 2022 @ 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.Free
Although education is a key determinant of cognitive function, its role in determining Black-White disparities in cognitive function is unclear. This may be due, in part, to data limitations that have made it difficult to account for systemic educational inequities in the U.S. South experienced by older adults. In this talk, guest speaker and health policy expert Dr. Katrina Walsemann of the University of Maryland, College Park, will present results from her ongoing projects funded by the NIA and the Alzheimer’s Association.
