Villa Assumpta Sisters Enjoy Nun Study Presentation

Dr. Margaret (Maggie) Flanagan visited Villa Assumpta recently to provide an update on the ongoing Nun Study. It includes 678 SSNDs, 75 to 107 years of age, who agreed to participate in the research. 

Sisters who agreed to particpate include a centenarian who was a model of healthy aging, a 92-year-old with dementia, and an 85-year-old with well-preserved cognitive and physical function despite a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's disease and an abundance of Alzheimer's disease lesions.
