November 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On November 4, 2022, Adina Zeki Al Hazzouri (Epidemiology) will present as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2022-2023 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.

Bio: Dr. Zeki Al Hazzouri is an epidemiologist and the overarching goal of her research program is to improve the understanding of how social and cardiovascular factors experienced across the life-course influence cognitive function, Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s related dementias (AD/ADRD). An important theme of her work focuses on poverty and financial well-being as social determinants of cognitive aging. Another theme of her work also focuses on causal inference methodologies that address challenges in ADRD research including, inverse probability weighting, trial emulation, and regression discontinuity designs. Her work leverages innovative methods such as pooling, cross-walking and harmonization of existing epidemiological cohorts to address life course ADRD research questions.
