Over the month of April, the IA2 team was busy. The IA2 team was able to travel this month for many exciting events to learn and share more about brain health, wandering, and elder justice among other topics, with American Indian and Alaska Native elders. IA2 attended the 2023 Nevada Tribal Summit on Brain Health with the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and Dementia Friendly Nevada. IA2 also attended the National Title VI Training and Technical Assistance Conference in Washington, DC. We now have many of our brain health resources available on our website for print and download!
