About the event
In a collaborative effort between the African Career, Education & Resources, Inc. (ACER) and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, the African Memory Loss Project will launch a Memory and Dementia Education Booklet. The book highlights the findings of the Memory Loss Project's study to understand the lived experiences and extent of dementia care needs and resources among African immigrants in the Twin Cities.
The African immigrant community in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is growing rapidly, and yet the dementia care needs and resources of this community remain largely unknown. The goal of this project is to provide information on current dementia knowledge, caregiving practices, and healthcare utilization which will inform the development of culturally tailored community-level health promotion efforts to enhance dementia knowledge, education, and healthcare services.
The results of the study bore the African Immigrant Dementia Education Project. The pilot group will receive culturally-tailored dementia education. Communities are invited to learn more at the book launch in the Purple Rose Lounge.
