This episode contains an interview with Megan Zeulsdorff PhD, who is an Assistant Professor and epidemiologist at the University of Wisconsin. Megan discusses her recent publication entitled "Stressful Life Events and Racial Disparities in Cognition Among Middle-Aged and Older Adults." This important research demonstrates that greater lifetime stress predicted poorer later-life cognition in African Americans. This episode digs into the particulars of why this is and what we can do to address the problem.
