The focus of my research has been on health disparities and dementia risk and prevention. My current research brings these 2 areas of research together. I am studying risks and protective factors for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias among LGBTQI adults aged 60+. This research will help to define the burden and develop preventive strategies. I also hope this work will lead to better detection and treatment. Future research is also needed on interventions that can prevent and reduce the burden of Alzheimer’s disease in LGBTQI populations.
