Welcome to our continuing education series on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). This four-part series provides culturally-relevant training and education to healthcare providers, primary care physicians, nursing professionals, non-clinicians, caregivers, and healthcare administrators to increase early identification and diagnosis of individuals with ADRD. 

We are excited to provide these free, high-quality education and training experiences for healthcare professionals, ensuring your knowledge and skills are current for working with individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. 

The courses can be taken in any order. Learners who complete all four courses are eligible to receive a digital badge that can be posted on LinkedIn as an industry-recognized skill and achievement taught through our courses.
