Minority Outreach

Partnering with other institutions, community organizations and local churches allows us to share what we know about dementia risk factors among minority groups, including African Americans and Hispanics. Making healthy lifestyle choices may help reduce the prevalence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, which are significant risk factors for developing memory loss and dementia.
