Perceptions of Risk Factors for Alzheimer Disease Among Community-Dwelling, Nondemented Older African Americans

Descrição: Purpose: Heightened Alzheimer disease (AD) risk among African Americans represents a racial disparity in aging. This study examines perceptions of AD risk factors among nondemented older African Americans. Methods: Participants indicated how important nine factors were in increasing one-s AD risk using a Likert-type scale with endpoints 1=not at all important to 4=extremely important. We examined perceptions of AD risk factors as a function of age, education, gender, and global cognition using separate logistic regression models. Patients: Participants were from The Minority Aging Research Study (N=610) with a mean age of 74.5 years, a mean education of 14.9 years, and 24% were men. Results: Of the AD risk factors, predictors were significantly related to genetics and God-s Will. Younger participants (est.=-0.06, P=0.02) and those with more education (est.=0.14, P=0.02) were more likely to report genetics as extremely important. Participants with more education were less likely to indicate God-s Will as extremely important (est.=-0.14, P
