Hundreds volunteer to take part in Age-Well Study

Hundreds volunteer to take part in Age-Well Study

Baseline tests have just begun on the first group of volunteers to pass the screening process for our Age-Well Study in Caen, France.

Hundreds of people aged 65 plus and living in the Caen area have already responded to our invitation to take part in the Study, and those who have successfully completed the screening  have just had an initial medical assessment and blood samples taken. The study will assess the effects of cognitive interventions – such as meditation and language learning – on volunteers through both behavioural and biological measures.

Many more volunteers will be needed as the study progresses and a second wave of recruitment, including a series of public meetings, will take place in the spring of 2017. For full details of those events and to access the online pre-screening information please visit our French language website by clicking here
