​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​LSA​​HA is a research study on dementia and related health and social challenges in Lebanon. Its goal is to find ways to prevent dementia among older adults in Lebanon and to make aging a better experience for them. The study is a collaboration of researchers at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon, and Georgetown University and the University of Michigan in the United States.​


​​LSAHA​ is a survey study of a representative sample of 3,000 residents of Lebanon aged 60 years and above​​. Study staff administer a survey questionnaire to the participants with standardized questions about their personal, social, and economic background, about their cognitive, physical and mental health, and about their present and past life experiences.
