April 15th – 7th Annual Minority Health Month Dialogue

April 8, 2021

On behalf of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute (WAI) Regional Milwaukee Office, it is with great pleasure to invite you to join us for the 7th Annual Minority Health Month Dialogue, Breaking the Silence: Addressing Dementia in Communities of Color. This online event will be held on Thursday, April 15, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and the theme for this year is Meet the People Where They Are … Continuing the Dialogue on Exclusivity in Research.

We are so pleased to present our keynote speaker Dr. Jonathan Jackson, Director of the Community Access, Recruitment and Engagement (CARE) Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

April marks National Minority Health Month – highlighting health disparities that persist among racial and ethnic minority populations and the ways in which legislation, policies, and programs can help advance health equity. It is our hope that individuals and families will feel empowered, receive information surrounding the health of communities of color, and share their knowledge with others to take charge of their health. Together, we can keep the momentum going and continue to BREAK THE SILENCE in communities of color helping individuals and families get access to the services they need.
