Jenay Beer, associate professor in both the School of Social Work and the College of Public Health, is one of the recipients of the third round of Presidential Interdisciplinary Seed Grants. This project, co-led by Lisa Renzi-Hammond and Jenay Beer, will develop a UGA center focused on countering state-wide disparities in prevention and access to health care for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD). School of Social Work faculty member Tiffany Washington is serving as a co-I on the grant.

The team has already begun offering dementia education workshops in four Archway Partnership communities—Grady, Hart, McDuffie and Washington counties. This funding will expand their program to two additional Archway communities. The Archway Partnership is a UGA Public Service and Outreach unit.
