Update on FINGER Study

The original Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability (FINGER) study, to which ARPF has been a supporter for almost 10 years, has shown such promising results that it’s now grown into a world wide study. Thanks to your generous support, your ARPF is thrilled to have been one of the pioneer funders of this far-reaching initiative, and to have the founder of FINGER, Miia Kivipelto, M.D., Ph.D., as part of our own Scientific Advisory Council.

This multi-domain intervention model is currently being replicated in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia. The studies cover a two-year to twenty-year research period and include thousands of participants from diverse populations.

The World Wide FINGERS (WW-FINGERS) is an interdisciplinary network to share experiences, harmonise data, and plan joint international initiatives for the prevention of cognitive impairment or dementia.
