Now is the time to take action to end Alzheimer’s. 

The memories you save could be your own.

 The toll of Alzheimer’s disease is reaching epidemic proportions. One in nine Americans over age 65 is living with Alzheimer’s at a cost of $203 billion annually. Someone receives a devastating Alzheimer’s diagnosis every 68 seconds. By 2050, nearly as many as 16 million people in the U.S. will be battling the disease, and the cost to care for them will exceed $1.2 trillion. 

The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry provides a platform for those who are willing and ready to take part in prevention research through education, advocacy and study participation and prove that there is power in numbers. Alzheimer’s research and prevention trials can take up to two years to fill, which often can mean too little, too late for many families. The Registry helps match enrollees with research, which could cut the time to complete studies in half and help researchers get results faster

 By joining the Registry, you can join the fight against a disease that steals life before it ends.
