Jonathan Jackson, PhD

Dr. Jackson is the director of the Community Access, Recruitment, and Engagement (CARE) Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. CARE investigates the impact of diversity and inclusion on the quality of human subjects research and leverages deep community entrenchment to build trust and overcome barriers to clinical trial participation. Dr. Jackson also works as a cognitive neuroscientist, investigating the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease, particularly in the absence of overt memory problems. 


Garrett Davis

Mr. Davis is a playwright and CEO/Founder of The Forget Me Not Project. His creativity to use the performing arts as a vehicle to raise the awareness about health issues that affect our community has been called brilliant and simply genius. Davis serves as an ambassador for the National Alzheimer’s Association working to ensure that all understand the laws that affect the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Davis is also one of the founders of the African American Network Against Alzheimer’s disease whose Honorary Co-Chairs are Dr. Satcher, Rev. Al Sharpton and former Administration officials, The Honorable Kay Coles James and Melody Barnes.
