Details:

Oklahoma Dementia Care Network in collaboration with the Choctaw Nation, has scheduled an informal meeting to discuss brain health and related factors in American Indian communities.

Caregivers of individuals living with dementia are encouraged to participate. Participants will learn about available resources to help manage brain health, with emphasis on community health workers as brain health resources in American Indian communities in Oklahoma City.

Those who attend the town hall will be eligible to engage in a voluntary question and answer session, which will contribute to research being conducted on brain health in underserved communities in Oklahoma. The same resources and information are provided to all attendees, regardless of participation in the study.

Keith L. Kleszynski, Ph.D., assistant professor of research in the Section of Geriatric Medicine, at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, leads the study and may be reached at (405) 271-8558 or keith-kleszynski@ouhsc.edu.

If you are attending the Town Hall, you will be eligible to participate in a question and answer format that is part of a research study on brain health in underserved communities in Oklahoma. If you would not like to participate, you will still receive the same information and resources as those who participate in the study. The study is being led by Dr. Keith Kleszynski, Assistant Professor of Research in the Section of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center on behalf of OkDCN.
