Making Good Life Choices Helps Protect Brain Health
IA² has adapted The Lancet Risk factors for dementia infographic and created a version culturally tailored towards American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The process of creating this infographic included talking circles with tribal community members, Dementia Friends & Champions, the University of Nevada, Reno Dementia Engagement, Education and Research (DEER) Program, IA²’s Brain Health Leadership team, and internal IA² staff members.
This infographic is intended to be used within the Dementia Friends for American Indian and Alaska Native Information Session workbook. IA² has been working with the same people mentioned above to create more culturally relevant content for an updated workbook. This allows us to embrace American Indian and Alaska Native community values. We strive to consider changes to the content to improve readability and health literacy. The “Help Reduce Your Risks of Dementia” infographic is a product of this larger effort.
The “Help Reduce Your Risks of Dementia” infographic can be downloaded as a standalone document to be used as any type of outreach material your community may need!
