    Preventing dementia and cardiovascular disease via internet


    Since early this month the AMC coordinates a European research project which was awarded a 5.8 million euro grant from the EU. The aim of the HATICE project is prevention of dementia and cardiovascular disease in the elderly. With this grant a new easily accessible internet platform for elderly will be developed, with readily available nurse-support.

    Elderly people often have several health problems at the same time ('multi-morbidity'): From dementia to diabetes and the aftermath of a stroke. The most important risk factors for these conditions are well known: Sedentary lifestyle, overweight, smoking, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Reducing these risks is the first step towards healthy aging.
