Sign Up for Alzheimer's Talks

Join our next Alzheimer's Talks on Friday, April 20, at 2 p.m. Eastern for a discussion with Karen Lincoln, PhD, of the University of Southern California’s Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, about her pioneering work exploring the effectiveness of different health education approaches on Alzheimer’s knowledge and attitudes.

Dr. Lincoln launched a pilot study among African Americans last year. Called BrainWorks, it was the first of its kind to use daily texting to boost knowledge about Alzheimer’s and change attitudes about clinical trials. The results were promising enough that she now has funding to extend her work, seeking ultimately to increase African American participation in Alzheimer’s prevention research.
