Northland Diversity in Aging Series: Dementia from Different Perspectives
Join us for our virtual event, Northland Diversity in Aging Series: Dementia from Different Perspectives.

With our rapidly aging population, the number of people living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia is increasing. In 2020, the number of Americans living with dementia was approximately 7 million, and in 2040, the projected number is 12 million. And certain groups of people are disproportionately impacted by dementia.

Our next Northland Diversity in Aging Series event focused on dementia will be held through Zoom Webinar on June 16, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This event will feature experts who will present the latest research and highlight the impacts on diverse groups of people living with dementia and their caregivers. And two lived-experience caregivers from very different perspectives will share their stories about caring for loved ones with dementia.

The Northland Diversity in Aging Series is a collaboration of The College of Saint Scholastica's Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and the Gerontology Program, Duluth Aging Support, Northland Foundation, and the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging. The purpose is to foster conversations and promote learning about the aging and caregiving experience across generations and cultures.
