Calling All Voices

The “Calling All Voices” project was a collaboration with Dementia Action Alliance, Otsuka Pharmaceuticals, and the High Lantern Group. The aforementioned organizations wanted to hear the Black perspective as it relates to dementia. I, (Debra Tann) was called upon as a dementia consultant to facilitate all interviews for the project. We experienced incredible dialogue which has manifested in this spot on White Paper entitled “Calling All Voices.” It was my distinct honor to interview all participants. I laud their transparent courage to share their personal journey to educate the masses on dementia. Stay tuned for the podcast version of “Calling All Voices.”
