Watch: 2016 African American Forum – Ask the Experts Session

Watch this great session from the expert panel at the 8th Annual African American Wellness Forum which took place on April 16th in Berkeley, CA. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, and interact with other caregivers in similar caregiving situations. African Americans continue to be twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, and more likely diagnosed in the late stages of this disease. In addition to learning more about Alzheimer’s disease, caregivers also learned how to respond when Alzheimer’s causes unpredictable behaviors, how to reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s, and various ways to stay strong during stressful caregiving experiences.
