The Pennsylvania Action Coalition (PA AC), in partnership with the Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (PONL) and the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium, is producing a webinar series that focuses on institutionalizing a culture of resiliency for nurses during a high-stress time. In producing this webinar series, we aim to provide a platform to share tangible resources that can be implemented across various nursing roles that are specific to their work. We extend our sincere gratitude to nurses who are currently serving on the front-lines of the COVID-19 pandemic and the entire nursing profession for their dedication to our health and safety.

With the dramatic growth of the Latino older adult population, Alzheimer’s poses a serious threat to the health and economic well-being of the Latino community. In fact, by 2030, nearly 40% of Americans living with Alzheimer's will be Latino or African American. This webinar will provide an overview of the latest science related to health disparities in Alzheimer’s impacting Latino families, including lagging detection and inaccessible research. Health and advocacy experts will discuss opportunities for promoting culturally tailored brain health education in communities and in healthcare practices. The webinar will culminate in a call to action related to filling brain health knowledge gaps among Latino-serving providers who work on the frontlines of the growing Alzheimer’s crisis in underserved communities.

Presented by:

  • Adriana Perez, PhD, CRNP, ANP-BC, FAAN, FGSA, Assistant Professor of Nursing and Senior Fellow, Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing
  • Jason Resendez, BA Executive Director, LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s Coalition, convened by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s.
