The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) and the Alzheimer’s Association invite you to join our upcoming webinar on the National Brain Health for Tribal Nations Project, highlighting the work of four Tribal Nations working to address Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) in their communities.
- It is estimated that 3 in 9 American Indian and Alaska Native people over 65 will develop dementia. Compared to 1 in 9 of the overall population in the United States.
- ADRD conditions are marked by persistent difficulties with memory, thinking, and completing everyday activities like preparing food or sharing stories with loved ones.
- ADRD heightens the need for healthcare, services, and caregiving for elders.
Each program being highlighted is a grantee of the Brain Health for Tribal Nations Project – funded by the Alzheimer’s Association.
During the webinar, you will hear their stories and receive practical advice about how they developed ADRD strategies specific to the unique needs and opportunities in their communities.
