More Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – an estimated 6.5 million Americans. Older Black Americans are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than White Americans. Black Americans are less likely to receive a diagnosis. Further, when they are diagnosed, it is typically in the later stages of the disease, when their medical needs are greater. 

To help raise awareness of the impact of Alzheimer’s on Black American communities, Gdavis Productions and Films, LLC and the Alzheimer’s Association have joined together to create a new stage play titled, Unforgettable, which is coming to The Black Academy of Arts and Letters in Dallas on February 18, 2023. You can reserve your free tickets at www.unforgettableplay.com

This dynamic and unique stage play shines a spotlight on how one family navigates this devastating disease while caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s. The story will showcase the emotional toll on families while emphasizing the importance of early detection and treatment and the benefits of clinical trial participation.  

If you need assistance today, the Alzheimer’s Association offers free 45-minute online e-Learning classes. With over 20 topics to choose from, there is something for everyone. Perhaps you are a caregiver seeking to increase your caregiving skills and confidence, a friend wanting to understand how to support a neighbor living with a disease, or a lifelong learner looking to expand your personal knowledge. You might even be an educator seeking opportunities for your students to earn extra credit outside the classroom. Each course provides a personal certificate of completion that may be downloaded. By increasing community awareness about brain health, we might help to shift mindsets and reduce stigmas and myths surrounding this disease. Check out our complete catalog of classes at alz.org/training, or for more information call the 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
