I use a photo of a Black family because elderly Black people are twice as likely to have dementia as a white person. Hispanic folks are 1.5 times as likely. I attribute this to systemic racism and access to healthcare, though there is much more research needed. See the CDC link below, where these stats came from.

Dementia research: What’s exciting the experts?
Consider joining a clinical trial or study in person or online. All types of volunteers are needed — people with dementia or memory problems, caregivers, at-risk individuals, and healthy volunteers.
I participated in this one!
As of today, the link worked and I instantly got an emailed link to the test. I scored 25/30, which is pretty good. Anyone over 50 can take it. Once you finish, you are emailed your result. It only took me about 10 min to take it online.
