The Brain Health Community Resource website is currently being tested and developed with 12 older African Americans in Portland, Oregon. The resource seeks to honor our health and history. It will include information about African American healthy aging alongside culturally celebratory images and narratives gathered from the SHARP study.  Weaving Black history with brain health information can make learning more relatable and meaningful, and may make brain health content easier to recall and apply. 

Stay tuned. We will link our Community Resource site here when it's ready.
