Promoting effective, meaningful, and equitable care and research for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
About Our Lab
Our interdisciplinary team is committed to promoting effective, meaningful, and equitable care and research for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, also referred to as ADRD. We advance this mission by investigating care, utilization, and research disparities for people living with and at risk for ADRD and their caregivers.
Our lab is housed in the BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine within the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
Is grounded in core values of the nursing discipline to maintain, protect, and promote human dignity, health and abilities, and social justice.
Our team is composed of individuals with different perspectives, skills, and experiences who have come together to focus on this common goal in partnership with community stakeholders, people living with dementia, and family caregivers. We value the incredible contributions of research participants, community partners, and academic collaborators working with us to transform the landscape of dementia care and research.
We share UW–Madison’s commitment to creating a community where every person feels welcome, valued, and able to succeed. We view diversity as a source of strength, creativity, and innovation and value the contributions of each person with respect for the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich our university and community.
Beyond this, we view diversity and equitable inclusion as inextricably linked to our goals as a team and research unit and understand the critical work of disrupting cycles of structural and systemic discrimination and exclusion to achieve these goals.
