26) #BlackHistoryMonth Dr. Raina Croff

Dr. Raina Croff, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Neurology at the NIA Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center at Oregon Health & Science University.

Her groundbreaking work has garnered national attention for focusing on creating culturally celebratory approaches to physical activity, social engagement, and reminiscence therapy for healthier aging, particularly amidst the trauma of gentrification and its implications for older Black adults' cognitive health and social connectedness. Dr. Croff leads the Sharing History through Active Reminiscence and Photo-imagery (SHARP) Study that blends neighborhood walking and social reminiscence to maintain cognitive health among older healthy and mildly cognitively impaired older African Americans. We featured Dr. Croff program and several of the SHARP research trial participants in our documentary In Our Right Mind.
