News in research and awareness

In a new study, 12.9% of those 45 years and older in Alabama report experiencing confusion or memory loss, while 13.3% reported it in Tennessee. In both states nearly half of those who reported experiencing memory loss have not talked to their doctor. The findings come from the Cognitive Module of the 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), a public health survey conducted annually by states in coordination with the CDC. BRFSS participants are asked a series of questions about memory problems. See additional fact sheets from each state below. For more information on the BRFSS click here.
