Andrea is a fourth year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of Kansas. Andrea’s research interests are in the benefits of reducing sedentary behavior in older adults with cognitive impairment and she is currently collecting data from an at-home intervention. She is also interested in the exercise barrier of perceived effort to exercise in older adults with and without Alzheimer’s disease. Together, these important factors contribute to cognitive benefits that exercise and physical activity can confer in this population.
