Delaware Longitudinal Research Study of Alzheimer's Prevention (DeLSAP)

The DeLSAP is a long-term research project with two goals. First, it aims to study how risk and protective factors for dementia are related and change over time. Second, it aims to keep in touch with community members who want information about current and future research studies related to their risk and protective factors. 

Those involved in the DeLSAP also have the opportunity to participate in the DeLSAP Bio research study, which involves blood work and MRI testing.
