Grant boosts UCD center for aging Latinos

The National Institute on Aging has awarded a five-year, $3 million grant to fund a new Latino Aging Research Center at UC Davis.

Bringing together faculty from UCD’s School of Medicine and Moore School of Nursing, the center will be one of seven NIA-funded centers on minority aging research and the only one focused on the cognitive health of Latinos.

The aging Latino population — about one-third of the Central Valley’s residents — faces poverty and a lack of adequate care that places an extra burden on Latinas, in particular, because Latino families traditionally care for aging family members at home, according to a UCD news release.

The center will award new pilot grants each year. Among its initial projects will be conducting interviews examining the benefits and barriers to volunteering for cognitive health, studying caregiver experience and well-being and examining the impact of neighborhoods on the risk of diabetes.

“We need to identify and train a larger cadre of committed researchers if we are to advance the science and reduce cognitive health disparities for aging Latinos and their families,” said principal investigator Ladson Hinton, director of geriatric psychiatry in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and a researcher at UCD’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center, in the release.
