UC Davis Health System will host the fifth annual Spanish Mini-Medical School on Saturday, April 7, at UCD’s Sacramento campus.

The event is sponsored by the UCD Alzheimer’s Disease Center, UCD Center for Reducing Health Disparities and the UCD Clinical and Translational Science Center.

Unique in the nation, the one-day school provides Spanish-speaking middle-aged and older adults, along with caregivers, the opportunity to learn about critical health issues in their native language and to discuss these topics with Spanish-speaking health-care professionals from UCD and the community. Topics covered at this year’s event will include strategies to maintain your brain, depression and organ transplantation.

“The Spanish Mini-Medical School is an effective model for delivering timely health information in an interactive format to middle-aged and older adults so that they are better able to get the health care that they need,” said Ladson Hinton, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, director of geriatric psychiatry and leader of the education core at the UCD Alzheimer’s Disease Center.

The day will begin with a welcome from Claire Pomeroy, vice chancellor for human health sciences and dean of the School of Medicine at UCD. Other presenters include Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, director of the Center for Reducing Health Disparities and a professor of internal medicine; Carolina Apesoa-Varano, medical sociologist with the Betty Irene School of Nursing; Brian Gallay, professor of nephrology with the UCD Transplant Center; Melvin Whitlock Jr., in-house donation coordinator for the UCD Transplant Center; and Ernesto Hidalgo, the Latino outreach specialist for the Northern California Alzheimer’s Association.

Pre-registration is required, but participants will be admitted at the door if there is room. The audience will be limited to 100 attendees. To register in Spanish or English, call (916) 734-5243.

The event takes place at the UCD MIND Institute auditorium, 2825 50th St., Sacramento. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with opening remarks starting at 8:30 a.m. The daylong series of presentations includes a continental breakfast and lunch for attendees. It concludes at 3 p.m.

The UCD Alzheimer’s Disease Center is one of only 29 research centers designated by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging. The center’s goal is to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and treatment for patients while focusing on the long-term goal of finding a way to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s disease. Also funded by the state of California, the center allows researchers to study the effects of the disease on a uniquely diverse population. For more information, visit alzheimer.ucdavis.edu.
