Dementia and the LGBT Experience: Presentation and Roundtable

Learn about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss in the LGBT community during this brief community-focused listening/discussion session. Join us to take a look at the importance of increasing resources and outreach to the aging LGBT population. We will explore the unique factors that put this group at potentially higher risk for developing dementia, and the resources that may be needed for them and their loved ones as they age.  Finally, we’ll look at the services of the Alzheimer’s Association and how we can expand the reach of local programs and services within the LGBT community.

Special guest speaker will be Jason D. Flatt, PhD, MPH (He, Him, His), Assistant Professor in the Social and Behavioral Program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Public Health.  He also presented for the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference, and is recipient of the 2020 Early-Stage Investigator Award from the NIH.
