August 2015:
Rebeca Wong, PhD, director of the WHO/PAHO Collaborating Center at UTMB, received a grant from the NIA for the 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.
