Event Overview
Welcome message:

Diagnosis, prevention, and the care provided to individuals with Alzheimer's disease are greatly influenced by socioeconomic and cultural factors. Statistics suggest that the incidence of Alzheimer's disease is greater in Latinos compared to Caucasians. This symposium will raise awareness and will provide empirical evidence about best practices for preventing, diagnosing and caring for Latino individuals with Alzheimer's disease.


Each presenter, all of whom have dedicated their scientific and clinical careers to studying Alzheimer's disease in Latino populations, will overview the current needs, research findings, and practice knowledge that inform care of Latino individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their families. It will also provide a platform for the development of collaborations and support among health-care professionals, scientists and trainees.


Describe the impact of cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic factors in Alzheimer's disease.

Identify risk factors for Alzheimer's disease in older Latinos

Identify strategies to reduce risk and improve early detection of Alzheimer's disease in Latinos.

Describe strategies to provide care and support for Latino older adults and their caregivers
