Dr. Finlay’s current research focuses on how neighborhood built and social environments may slow rates of cognitive decline and reduce risk for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia among diverse aging Americans. She also investigates psychosocial and behavioral impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the physical, mental, and cognitive health of older adults.
