MARQUAM TALKS: Raina Croff, Ph.D. .... Assistant professor of Neurology and medical anthropologist Dr. Raina Croff is the first researcher to document the cognitive impacts of gentrification on older African Americans in Portland's historically Black neighborhoods and to devise a therapy - combining neighborhood walks with active reminiscence - to forestall memory loss while aiding older residents in reclaiming their sense of place, self and social connection.

Marquam Talks are virtual talks showcasing the research and clinical advances of OHSU faculty on timely topics. All talks will end with a question and answer period with the speaker. (the Register Now button will take you to this link).
