Melinda Power presents at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Chicago, IL.

Assistant Professor Melinda Power spoke about her work developing algorithmic dementia diagnoses in HRS, titled Development of Algorithmic Dementia Diagnoses for Disparities Research  at an NIA-sponsored focus topic session at AAIC.  She also presented two posters.  The first considered whether known pathologies can account for the age-associated increased risk of dementia using an autopsy cohort, and was titled Combined Neuropathological Pathways Account for Age-Related Increases in Risk of Dementia.  The second looked at the association between EKG measures of heart function and cognitive decline in the HAAS study, and was titled Midlife Incident Prolonged Rate-Corrected QT Interval Does Not Predict Late-Life Cognitive Performance: The Honolulu-Asia Aging Study.
