Colorado PCA support is committed to helping combat the systemic racial inequalities that have existed throughout history and is working to be part of the solution for change and justice for the lives of black people in the United States. We will work with CU Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center (CUACC) to be part of the change that is urgently needed. Please read the below statement from CUACC.
Black lives matter.
The researchers, clinicians, and staff of the University of Colorado Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center are strongly committed to addressing the unacceptable racial disparities in dementia burden, clinical care access, and research priorities. We vigorously condemn racism in all its forms, including systemic inequities that contribute to Black people being up to twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease as white people. We believe that it is not enough to hold these beliefs – we must speak out, and more importantly, we must enact change.
We are developing a dedicated action plan to take meaningful steps towards these goals. We look forward to sharing these plans with our community in the near future, and we will actively listen to your feedback.
Healthy brain aging starts here. For all.
