The Sharing History through Active Reminiscence and Photo-imagery (SHARP) Program aims to improve brain health for older African Americans while meeting a community priority of preserving local Black history in the face of gentrification. SHARP is funded by the CDC, Alzheimer's Association, and the National Institute on Aging.
