(WTNH)– African American and Hispanics are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, and a recent report from the Alzheimer’s Association shows discrimination is a barrier when it comes to Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
The Connecticut Chapter is holding a Dementia Education Conference next week. Health Systems Director with the Alzheimer’s Association Eme Martin explains why minority populations may be experiencing discrimination in accessing health care in the video above.
