Communication About Alzheimer’s Disease and Research Among American Indians and Alaska Natives
This study surveyed over 300 Native Americans to collect information about their knowledge and perception of Alzheimer’s disease research. Results showed that respondents living in cities were more willing to participate in research than those living on reservations, and willingness to participate was associated with perceived personal risk for Alzheimer’s. Health professionals and the internet were preferred sources of information about Alzheimer’s disease.
