Dr. Peggye Dilworth-Anderson receives Lifetime Achievement Award in AD research


Congratulations Dr. Peggye Dilworth-Anderson on receiving the Bengt Winblad Lifetime Achievement Award in Alzheimer’s Research at AAIC’22 in San Diego, CA!

Dr. Dilworth-Anderson is a professor health policy and management at UNC Gillings School of Public Health, and associate of the Center for Health Equity at UNC School of Medicine. She is also a co-investigator for the Alzheimer’s Association’s New IDEAS Study, which investigates brain amyloid PET scans in diverse populations with mild cognitive impairment and dementia. Dilworth-Anderson’s research on health disparities in caregiving for Alzheimer’s and other dementia and development of methods/strategies to advance an inclusive science in the study of Alzheimer’s have greatly informed the conduct of culturally relevant research and has enabled wider dissemination of information about Alzheimer’s and dementia in medically underserved populations.

Dr. Dilworth-Anderson is also a Duke-UNC ADRC Outreach, Recruitment, Engagement (ORE) Core faculty!
