This 10-minute episode of the Speaker Series will stream on Facebook Live:
• When: Tuesday, November 12 at 1 p.m. ET
• Where: AARP’s Create the Good Facebook page.


Be sure to bring your questions! All of Us and Create the Good will respond to viewers during the discussion.

Hi 777,
Here's a link to the Speaker Series information: https://allofustec.nnlm.gov/conversations

It will be streamed live through AARP's Facebook Live link at 1:00 PM EST today: https://www.facebook.com/createthegood/ I assume that link will continue to be active and you can watch the video at any time, especially since they say that a Spanish-language version will be available in a few weeks.

FYI: You don't have to be a member of AARP; I'm not and I was able to open the link.

Very short and not news to many of us here, but good to see the summary and effort broadcast. Some points made:

Besides the top three risk factors of age, apoe4 and family history, a 'whole compendium' of variables factor in:

Increasing Risk
CVD
diabetes
hypertension
obesity
smoking
sedentary lifestyle
social isolation
socioeconomic risk factors

Reducing Risk
higher educational attainment
physical attainment
social engagement
[unless I missed it diet wasn't mentioned]

We don't understand the interplay of all these mechanisms well.

Areas of Promise [and this is really where All of Us fits in]
biomarker discovery
big data to improve research models

Anyone else can feel free to correct or add ...

Dear NF 52, thanks for taking care of this. I had to leave home quite early and hadn't seen the question until just now.

Cheers, Berri
