Breanna Jones

Research Study Supervisor, ADRC Native Research and Resource Core/Outreach and Engagement Core, Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health, Washington State University

The UW Alzheimer's Disease Research Center team collaborates with researchers and staff at the Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health (IREACH) at Washington State University in the effort to reach out to American Indian/Alaska Native communities with Alzheimer's education and resources.  Meet Breanna Jones, who is a Research Study Supervisor for the Native Research and Resource Core/Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement Core portion of the UW ADRC grant housed within IREACH. "I am looking forward to getting a glimpse of the ever-changing knowledge surrounding ADRD and how it affects various communities," she says. Jones previously lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma and worked for a professional and leadership development company called Paradigm Shift for 7 years. "As the granddaughter of a BIPOC woman who suffered from Alzheimer's disease, I am most excited about the diversity in research initiatives," she says. "Including underserved communities in this research is an important part of increasing access to care that is specific to them." Outside of work, Jones loves snowboarding, basketball, dancing, and "researching the actor I just saw in that tv show or movie."
