Project Description

Keeping It REAL Caregiving talks with a UCLA researcher who says to do these three things when identifying Alzheimer’s Disease.

Cultural challenges in Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis and care exist. In fact, there may also be more at work than just medical science when it comes to proper diagnosis. Could cultural differences in how families view aging and health also play a role?

Keeping It REAL Caregiving recently talked with UCLA Research Coordinator in Public Policy and PhD student, Lauren Garcia about this topic. She shares information based upon her clinical research as well as her personal experience facing Alzheimer’s Disease in her own family.

I’m proud and honored to say Garcia is a fellow 2022 American Society on Aging, ASA Rise Fellow.
