Epidemiology of Age-related Dementia, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Brain Pathology in a Multiethnic Cohort of Oldest-Old

The Life After 90 Study (LA90) is a collaborative study between DOR, UC Davis, and UC Irvine following a diverse cohort of approximately 1,000 KPNC members age 90 and over to examine life course risk factors of cognitive decline and dementia risk. This study is evaluating differences in dementia incidence and rate of cognitive decline by race/ethnicity; evaluating how life course experiences are related to dementia incidence and cognitive decline; and examining life course factors associated with biomarkers from braining imaging and pathology. In 2022, we intend to begin to enroll an additional 500 KPNC members age 90 and over.
