I’m honored to connect with Debra Tann through her groundbreaking book, The Race of Dementia. This book examines the disparity of race and poverty as they relate to the health care system and a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The title of the book serves as a double entendre. First, there is a race for a cure. Second, there is shrouding evidence that suggest Blacks and Latinos will make up nearly 40% of the 8.4 million American families affected by Alzheimer’s. Hence, it is literally The Race of Dementia.
Thank you for writing for AlzAuthors, Debra.
