LGBTQIA+ Populations and Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias 

Over 3 million or more adults aged 60 + live in the U.S. who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or another identity (LGBTQIA+). Less is known about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia risk and related concerns for the LGBTQIA+ community. We will discuss risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and related concerns among LGBTQIA+ adults from multiple studies. Our research has found higher rates of memory problems and related concerns for the LGBTQIA+ community. We will discuss why it is so important to collect details on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), and how historical and current experiences of LGBTQIA+ community are relevant for health and social care professionals. We will also discuss some of our new research opportunities for the community.
