    BOLD Public Health Center of Excellence on Dementia Caregiving

Opportunity Description:

Faith-based organizations (FBOs) have always been very active in health promotion and disease prevention. Many of them provide dementia awareness and education programs, along with resources and support for community members with dementia, their families and caregivers. As trusted community institutions, faith-based organizations can be a key partner for public health agencies in their efforts to reach and support a larger number of people living with dementia and their caregivers. The first installment of this webinar series, will provide an overview of dementia-related work FBOs currently do, their role as public health agents in dementia caregiving, and share practical recommendations for public health agencies for effectively partnering with faith organizations.
