You can be part of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative

Today I joined the Registry of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative. It only took a few minutes of my time. I hope you join too. 

The Registry was created by Banner Alzheimer's Institute (BAI) which is involved in advancing Alzheimer's disease care and treatment through research. It serves as a portal to connect people who want to help end Alzheimer’s with prevention studies and information on the latest research news. 

Participants become part of an online community that provides them with regular updates on the latest scientific advances and news, information on overall brain health and the potential opportunity (but no obligation) to participate in prevention studies. The only requirement to sign up for the registry is to be 18 or older.
