Friday, October 29, 2021

With co-authors Abla Sibai, Martine Elbejjani, Maya Abi Chahine and Ritu Sadana, our faculty member Adina Zeki Al Hazzouri, PhD, published a comment in an October issue of The Lancet Healthy Longevity "Late-life learning and health: challenges, opportunities, and future directions." The authors conclude that late-life learning programs offer "a unique platform to address exciting innovative research questions, and improve our understanding of the determinants of active and healthy aging and inform future investments and the design of late-life learning programs. [These could] serve as starting point for assessment of whether late-life learning can be built around targeted interventions for specific aging-related disorders, such as dementia and declines in cognitive function, and hence provide a new and rare opportunity to modify the course of aging-related pathologies."
