Place & Brain Health Equity: Understanding the County-Level Impacts of Alzheimer’s

Abstract

The effects of where people live, and the social determinants of health are under-recognized and under-appreciated in our national response to effectively treat and prevent Alzheimer’s. To better understand these issues, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s and the Urban Institute analyzed the social determinants of health present in the counties most impacted by Alzheimer’s among Latinos and Blacks in the Medicare program. This report found that deep social inequities exist in counties highly impacted by Alzheimer’s among Latinos and Blacks.
