This listening session will be delivered in a web-based format. Link to join the virtual meeting is below.
The National Indian Health Board invites you to join us and the Alzheimer’s Association for a listening session on the forthcoming Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map for Indian Country. The Alzheimer’s Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are finalizing this first-ever tool on public health strategies for Alzheimer’s disease, an important and growing issue. The Road Map will be a tool to learn about dementia, make plans, and get started building a better future for younger generations and better care for older community members. While prior input from Tribal leaders and health experts helped the Association and CDC shape the contents of the Road Map, the March 21st session seeks Tribal wisdom about the best messages and strategies to encourage awareness and use across Indian Country. A draft layout of the tool will also be shown so the Association can benefit from your feedback on the publication design. Broad participation from Tribal parties is needed to help this important tool speak to our diverse communities.
