No Access, No Justice: Addressing Systemic Racism in Alzheimer’s Research and Health Services

The impacts of systemic racism are being discussed more openly than ever before, from policing to COVID-19’s effects on people of color. This town hall will explore the role that systemic racism has played in shaping access to Alzheimer’s research and health services, from exclusionary study protocols to discrimination against researchers of color. Speakers will explore solutions for addressing the effects of racism through equity-centered research, policymaking and infrastructure development. Key question: What goals can we set to help address the effects of systemic racism in access to Alzheimer’s health services and research?

With a special message from Reverend Al Sharpton.

This Town Hall is part of the UsAgainstAlzheimer's Brain Health Equity Conference Series supported by Genentech. We thank Genentech for their investment in our vision for Brain Health Equity.
