Dr. Peggye Dilworth-Anderson receives Bengt Winblad Lifetime Achievement Award from the Alzheimer’s Association

Peggye Dilworth-Anderson, Ph.D., is the recipient of the Bengt Winblad Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a professor of health policy and management (School of Public Health) and associate of the Center for Health Equity (School of Medicine) at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 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.

The Award was presented at the 2022 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference to recognize researchers for their varied expertise, noteworthy achievements and innovative contributions to the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia science. Please see full article
