Project: Anxiety experienced by older Canadians regarding cognitive abilities and risk of future declines

Term: Fall 2010

Program: BSc Kinesiology 

Kimberly, as a member of an ongoing research team, was trained to administer neuropsychological assessments on older adults including those experiencing mild cognitive impairment or dementia. This work provided Kimberly with insight on the anxiety that older Canadians have regarding their existing cognitive abilities as well as the risks of future declines. From this Kimberly is considering pursuing graduate work in either the field of gerontology or geriatric medicine.
