August 2015: Congratulations to WHO/PAHO Director Dr. Wong on receipt of $1.2 Million NIA Grant for Mexican Cognitive Aging Ancillary Study
The project applies an in-depth assessment of cognitive impairment to a sub-sample of the MHAS cohort in Mexico in 2016, to estimate dementia prevalence in the population of older adults in Mexico. There will be similar assessments that will be applied in harmonization across several countries.
