Episode 188: LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's

Transcript for EP #188 - Jason Resendez: LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's.  Growing up in Alice, Texas, Jason Resendez didn't have any experience with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.  But now, as Executive Director of LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's, all he thinks about are the changing demographics in the Alzheimer's community, and in our nation. Jason talks about the growing impact of Alzheimer's and dementia on America's 55 million Latino families, and he tells us how LatinosAgainstAlzheimer's is coordinating Alzheimer's awareness and brain health promotion efforts in the Latino community, where individuals have unique barriers to the health care system, or issues around stigma and language access that other communities don't necessarily have.
