African American Participation in AD Research: Effective Strategies Workshop
October 10, 2018, 8:00am – 5:00pm
Eric P. Newman Education Center on the campus of Washington University School of Medicine
By 2050, over 40% of older adults will be minorities. As the aging United States population becomes increasingly diverse, the lack of information from diverse populations has potentially critical clinical considerations. Participation in Alzheimer disease (AD) research programs is overwhelmingly by non-Hispanic white persons. As a result, relatively little is known about Alzheimer disease and related disorders in persons from under-represented groups. This presents an enormous missed opportunity to fully appreciate the relevance of AD across all people. Join us to examine critical issues surrounding recruitment of African American participants into research studies, so that the benefit of future AD treatments and interventions will be a reality for everyone.
