Laura Fratiglioni, PI (

This study is the Stockholm branch of the Swedish National Study of Aging and Care (SNAC). SNAC-K’s aims are to improve health and care and identify strategies that might prevent health problems in older adults.  Participants are people 60 and older from the Stockholm neighborhood of Kungsholmen. Each participant spends half a day completing a social interview, clinical exam, and memory tests. The tests are repeated every sixth year until age 81, and every third year after that.
