Run Time: 35 min.
Join us for a free screening of Still Here on Tuesday, November 16th.
American Indians in North Carolina are at a 50% increased rate of dying from Alzheimer’s disease compared to non-Hispanic Whites. Still Here provides an intimate look inside the daily lives of some North Carolina American Indian families coping with the realities and challenges of their loved one living with Alzheimer’s disease. Community, kinship, and faith all play a vital impact in how these families cope. The film was made possible with support from Wake Forest School of Medicine Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center, NC American Indian Health Board, UNC School of Medicine Center for Aging, and Health Carolina Geriatric Workforce Enhancement project.
There will be a post-film audience discussion with Doctors Laura Baker and Ronny Bell.
