STEPHANIE J. MONROE is Director of Equity and Access and Executive Director of AfricanAmericansAgainstAlzheimer’s, a network of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s which is a national advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C. African Americans Against Alzheimer’s was founded in 2013 and is the first national network created specifically to respond to Alzheimer’s disease’s disparate impact on African Americans. By working nationally, locally, and through strategic partnerships, African Americans Against Alzheimer’s is raising awareness of the impact of Alzheimer’s health disparities on communities of color and women, the need for greater minority participation in clinical trials to find better treatments and hopefully a cure, and the importance of all communities, especially those most at risk to begin to focus on brain health and adopt risk reduction strategies that promote brain health and healthy aging.
