The first in our neuropsychology series!

This webinar will address key social determinants of health (SDOH) and how disparities in SDOH factors disproportionately impact brain health among ethnic and racial groups in the U.S. The webinar will review historical problems that have resulted in the misdiagnosis of cognitive status among racial and ethnic groups. The interaction between SDOH and biological factors will be discussed as it contributes to poor brain health outcomes. Finally, this session will provide direction for optimizing brain health in vulnerable populations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe key social determinants of health that contribute to brain health outcomes.
  • Discuss how SDOH factors contribute to poor brain health outcomes that disproportionately impact racial and ethnically diverse groups.
  • Identify ways to optimize cognitive health in vulnerable populations.
