Today is World Alzheimer’s Day!

By September 21, 2017Commentary, Community Events

Today, September 21, is WORLD ALZHEIMER’S DAY! Our faculty and staff are spending this day, as they do every other day:

  • In the laboratory performing cutting edge research with molecules, cells, and animal models to unlock the causes of Alzheimer’s disease and identify treatment targets
  • Working with volunteer participants who have donated their time to help us better understand, diagnose, and treat Alzheimer’s disease through research
  • Conducting clinical trials of promising therapies we hope will prevent, reduce, or reverse Alzheimer’s disease

We hope today you will consider doing one or all of the following:

  • ADVOCATE: Write to your local, state, or federal representative and communicate the need for increased funding for Alzheimer’s research and improved support for families with dementia. Click here!
  • DONATE: Make a gift to support Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND. Click here!
  • PARTICIPATE: Take a step toward enrolling in a study at UCI MIND by joining the UCI Consent-to-Contact Registry (C2C). You could be matched to a study that’s right for you. Click here!
