Abstract

Hispanics/Latinos are the largest ethnic/racial group in the United States and at high risk for Alzheimer's disease and related dementia (ADRD). Yet, ADRD among diverse Latinos is poorly understood and disparately understudied or unstudied compared to other ethnic/racial groups that leave the nation ill-prepared for major demographic shifts that lay ahead in coming decades. The primary purpose of this Perspectives article was to provide a new research framework for advancing Latino ADRD knowledge, encompassing the unique sociocultural, cardiometabolic, and genomic aspects of Latino health, aging, and ADRD. In addition, we describe some of the research challenges to progress in Latino ADRD research. Finally, we present the Study of Latinos – Investigation of Neurocognitive Aging (SOL-INCA) as an example of implementing this new framework for advancing Latino ADRD research.
