Meet Dr. Sid O'Bryant

In the intersection of groundbreaking brain science, health disparities, Alzheimer’s disease and transformative research, Dr. Sid O’Bryant delivers communities hope for the future.

Dr. Sid O’Bryant, affectionally known as “The Brain Care Doc” at The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, embodies a compelling vision: a world where everyone lives a brain-healthy life. His unwavering commitment to precision medicine in neurodegenerative diseases, particularly their impact on diverse backgrounds, has earned him nationwide recognition.

Dr. O'Bryant's mission is clear:

He's Determined To Tackle
Health Disparities In Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Alzheimer’s disease related dementias (ADRD)

Dr. O’Bryant as a researcher

plans to help find out why Alzheimer's impacts health disparity groups differently and how to prevent it.

Dr. O'Bryant believes

the lack of representation in health studies fuel the missing answers. Additionally, on average the cost for families to serve as a caregiver for a loved one living with dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease is roughly $14,280 each year.

Dr. O’Bryant and his team are responsible for receiving the largest grant in The University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) history. Dr. O’Bryant’s $150 million dollar grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is one of the largest awards ever given to Alzheimer’s research.

Dr. O'Bryant’s Approach to

Alzheimer's Disproportionately

impacts Blacks/African Americans and Hispanics, but the research doesn't reflect that reality. Dr. O’Bryant wants to understand how this disease presents across the community.

Health & Aging Brain Study HEALTH DISPARITIES

Dr. O'Bryant’s Health & Aging Brain study – Health Disparities (HABS-HD) is the most comprehensive large scale study of brain aging among diverse and at-risk communities in history. This study is designed to be a model and scalable in the fight against Alzheimer's that is disproportionately affecting Blacks and Hispanic communities.

Quotes

One of the drawbacks to the vast majority of Alzheimer’s research is that patients are usually 90-95 percent White. It is done through clinics with educated patients. It’s not representative of the community.

Dr. O'Bryant, 2023

Our group has been at the forefront of trying to document and understand how Alzheimer’s presents differently among different ethnic groups for a long time. This grant, is the product of 15 to 20 years’ worth of prior work.
