What do we do?
 Dr. Newton conducts research designed to reduce health disparities in African Americans using community-based methods. Dr. Carmichael develops brain imaging techniques and uses them to investigate how the brain changes with aging.
Together, we are conducting physical activity promotion programs for older African American adults. Our goal is to use these research studies to provide the evidence base needed to improve cognitive health in older African American adults.
