The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has launched an online quiz to help older Iowans determine their risk for cognitive decline and steps that can be taken to reduce the risk.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the sixth leading cause of death in Iowa and the US and cognitive decline and dementia are often contributing factors in other deaths.

IDPH and Winneshiek County Public Health encourages individuals to take the online quiz and use the online materials.  It is recommended to take the quiz, work on the suggested improvements for 6 months and then re-take the quiz to see how the risk for dementia has been reduced.
