Native American Outreach Program

Get to know us!

The Native American Outreach program was launched in 2003 to: 

  • Foster awareness, care and scientific understanding of Alzheimer’s/dementia in Native American communities through education and outreach activities 
  • Support participation among Native Americans in the Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center (ADCC) clinical core, a study of longitudinal aging and dementia


In 2008, Banner Alzheimer’s Institute assumed oversight of the Native American Outreach program and since then has forged working relationships with Arizona tribal and urban Indian communities as well as Native American health organizations.
