Perspectives on ethnic and racial disparities in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias: Update and areas of immediate need

Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRDs) are a global crisis facing the aging population and society as a whole. With nearly 47 million cases of ADRD globally, that will rise nearly 10 million each year over the coming decades. Unfortunately, despite the world’s diversity, the research on diverse global populations is limited. This paper discussed a large breadth of current research, as well as necessary direction to help bridge this gap in knowledge. The paper goes through a number of topics, including: disease detection, medicine or non-medical treatments, subjective concerns/symptoms, atypical Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia (e.g. strokes), nutrition, and technology.
