Cardio- and cerebrovascular disease are linked to poor brain health outcomes, including dementia. To increase public health impact of this knowledge, better train care providers to identify and counter vascular risk and disease (e.g. hypertension, clots, diabetes, metabolic syndrome) in everyday care settings, and better educate patients on the importance of vascular health and related lifestyle decisions for brain health. Track brain outcomes to determine long-term impacts of these measures.
