CCNA Team 14: How Multi-Morbidity Modifies the Risk of Dementia and the Patterns of Disease expression

“Team 14 is really about understanding how having health conditions all adding up together impacts the risk of getting dementia, how dementia progresses, and also how we manage and treat dementia. Our team aims to address the “real world of dementia,” which is that most people tend to have other chronic health conditions rather than being otherwise healthy. Also, more women than men tend to be affected by dementia. We want to understand why this is. Additionally, social environments are very important in being risk factors for dementia as well as impacting how people deal with the disease and how it’s managed.”
