Study Full Name:

Woman's Health and Aging Study - II

Study Start Date:

8/5/1994

Study End Date:

6/9/2005

Study Organization:

Johns Hopkins COAH

Study Description:

This study of a representative sample of 436 initially healthy older women in eastern Baltimore, Maryland has yielded important insights in understanding how limitations in activities of daily life progress to physical disability. As participants enter their 7th year in the study, Dr. Fried and colleagues in the Center on Aging and Health have successfully developed sensitive methods for earlier detection of changes in function that predict subsequent difficulty. These methods help us identify factors that put individuals at increased risk of physical disability and to design interventions to delay or prevent disability and prolong independence.
