Congratulations to UW Ob-Gyn Health Disparities Research Scholar Megan Zuelsdorff, PhD! The Alzheimer’s Association selected her abstract “Lifetime Stressful Experiences, Racial Disparities, and Cognitive Performance: Findings from the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP) Study” to be highlighted at the upcoming Alzheimer's Association International Conference® 2017 (AAIC®) taking place July 16-20, 2017 in London.

Zuelsdorff’s research finds that African-Americans who grow up in harsh environments and have many stressful experiences are much more likely to develop Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. National media outlets like the Washington Post and National Public Radio covered the research extensively over the weekend. Congratulations, Dr. Zuelsdorff!
