Tanisha Hill-Jarrett, M.S.

Tanisha Jarrett-Hill, PhD

Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Michigan

Dr. Tanisha Hill-Jarrett’s goals are to improve culturally-sensitive neuropsychological assessment of racial and ethnic minorities and to guide understanding of how culture-specific experiences and psychosocial factors shape cognitive outcome in older adults. She is a neuropsychology postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan and conducts research through the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Center. Her research program addresses issues pertinent to the onset and experience of Alzheimer’s disease within the African American community. Her research interests include factors that contribute to racial/ethnic disparities in Alzheimer’s disease incidence, early detection of cognitive precursors to Alzheimer’s disease, and African American dementia caregiver burden. Additionally, Dr. Hill-Jarrett has secondary interests in cultural neuropsychology and psychometrics. She is particularly interested in the implementation of advanced statistical methods to understand the measurement and assessment of cognitive functioning within racial and ethnic minority groups.
