The Center for Community Engagement Rural
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Research
Our long-term goal is to improve the quality of life for rural Minnesotans impacted by dementia. CERDAR has been established to tackle the growing challenge of dementia and dementia care needs in rural Minnesota. Current research projects address cultural factors in dementia care, rural dementia prevention, and technology to support caring for persons with dementia in their homes. We are also interested in identifying factors that would increase rural and Native American participation in ADRD related clinical trials.
