It’s Important to Tell Your Story: In Memory of B. Smith

It’s Important to Tell Your Story: In Memory of B. Smith

February 25, 2020

I am dedicating this week's episode to model, entrepreneur, author, speaker and pioneer B. Smith who recently passed away from the early onset of Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's is a growing epidemic among black people around the world. Her efforts to raise awareness on the disease before her passing will have a lasting impact on her legacy.

B. Smith's story is discussed in her book, "Before I Forget: Love, Hope, Help and Acceptance in Our Fight Against Alzheimer’s."

A great article from the Washington Post on Alzheimer's and African Americans, can be found here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/why-are-african-americans-so-much-more-likely-than-whites-to-develop-alzheimers/2017/05/31/9bfbcccc-3132-11e7-8674-437ddb6e813e_story.html
