Dementia Friends Massachusetts Hosts Virtual Event: “Let’s Talk about Dementia and Culture 2022”

Dementia affects every community, but not in the same way. Join us for a conversation about disparities, different needs, and specific strengths in many cultural and linguistic communities. Dementia educators and advocates in Black/African American, Chinese, Brazilian/Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Spanish-speaking, and Southeast Asian communities, as well as those working with people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, will share their insights and experiences. Come learn with us, as we work to raise awareness about dementia and make sure that information and support is available in all of our communities.

When and where: Tuesday, November 15, 2022, 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 EST. On Zoom.

Cost: Attendance is free

Interpretation: Simultaneous interpretation will be available in Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish and Vietnamese.

NASW-MA Chapter CE Approving Program, Authorization Number D91323. Certificates of attendance will also be available for nurses and those in other professions.
