Texas Researchers Analyze Why Alzheimer’s Strikes Hispanics Earlier in Life
Investigators at University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) in Fort Worth want to understand why people of Hispanic descent develop cognitive loss and Alzheimer’s disease earlier than non-Hispanics. Their new study, funded by a $12 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, aims to add knowledge on the early events that cause Alzheimer’s.

Knowledge is power when living with alzheimers.

    This is very interesting. There are potentially two different studies discussed here and curious which one is occurring? The title says the study is for Hispanics, but then the quote says Mexican-American only.

    If the participants must hail strictly from Mexico, that would be an interesting isolation of a geographic population and indicate findings specific to one region. Looking forward to seeing the findings from this study. Congrats University of North Texas on this important study!
