Alzheimer's Disease Center

We are dedicated to finding ways to treat and prevent Alzheimer's disease – a devastating illness that is predicted to rise to 12 million cases by the year 2030. We strive to educate people with Alzheimer's and their loved ones about the research, treatment, and support available here.
