Will I get Alzheimer’s if I live long enough?

By October 29, 2019Community Events

Tune in this Friday, November 1 @ 9AM for the next episode of our monthly Facebook LIVE series, “Will I get Alzheimer’s if I live long enough?”

This month, we’re joined by Maria Corrada, ScM, ScD, Professor of Neurology and Epidemiology in the UCI School of Medicine. Dr. Corrada received a masters in Biostatistics and a doctorate in Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University. She currently serves as co-principal investigator of The 90+ Study, a longitudinal study of aging and dementia in over 1,800 people aged 90 years and older, and Life After 90, a multiethnic cohort of people 90 and older in Northern California. Dr. Corrada’s research focuses on identifying risk and protective factors associated with dementia, and in particular understanding the cognitive and physical health of the oldest-old.
