Think Science: Dementia in South Texas recording

“South Texas is about 80% Hispanic. Hispanics on average have a 50% higher risk of developing dementia. And unfortunately, the risk is pretty high. If we don’t do anything, if we as a group don’t do anything, one in three of us will develop dementia at some time before we die. And that’s just unacceptable,” said Sudha Seshadri, MD, professor of neurology and founding director of the Biggs Institute, at the Texas Public Radio Think Science event that focused on dementia in South Texas.
