Lifecourse health, cerebral pathology and ethnic disparities in dementia (KHANDLE Study)

The Kaiser Healthy Aging and Diverse Life Experiences (KHANDLE) Study, a collaborative study between DOR and UC Davis, follows a diverse cohort of Kaiser Permanente Northern California members who participated in at least one optional check-up (Multiphasic Health Checkups) during midlife. This study is evaluating differences in dementia incidence and rate of cognitive decline across racial/ethnic group and sexes. It uses over five decades of data to examine how early life experience, life course health, and genetics influence differences in cognitive decline and dementia by race/ethnicity and sex.
