Kick-off ARC study in Ivory Coast
This week we launched our ARC study (Abidjan: Recherche sur la Cognition) in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire. ARC was designed to investigate the effects of dêguê enriched with a probiotic on the health and cognition of young children. Dêguê is a combination of fermented milk and millet and is already a part of many Ivoirians’ diets. The team of postdoc Bonnie Brett and research assistants Habib, Aimé, Bruno, Assa, and Frédéric, have started recruiting families and assessing the 6-year-olds’ health and cognition.
