Abstract/Summary

Alzheimer’s disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) are a global crisis facing the aging population and society as a whole. With numbers of people with ADRD predicted to rise dramatically across the world, the scientific community can no longer neglect the need for research focusing on ADRD among ethnoracial diverse groups. The Alzheimer’s Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART; alz.org/ISTAART) comprises a number of Professional Interest Areas (PIAs), each focusing on a major scientific area associated with ADRD. We leverage the expertise of the existing international cadre of ISTAART scientists and experts to synthesize a cross-PIA white paper that provides both, a concise “state-of-the-science” report of ethnoracial factors across PIA foci, and updated recommendations to address immediate needs to advance ADRD science across ethnoracial populations.
