Exciting Study Updates & News

 

We are pleased to announce that the Healthy Aging Study has begun to bring in selected individuals for more in-depth study. The Emory Brain Study will include collection of blood and other tests to understand how the body ages, and what might lead to Alzheimer's disease. We are also developing other sub-studies in depression and cardiovascular health.

In the next few months, you will be invited to complete short questionnaires on diet, physical activity, and sleep. We believe these will help us better understand your overall health!
