More than 5.2 million Americans now live with Alzheimer's disease. By 2050, that number is expected to nearly triple unless a treatment or cure is found. With an epidemic on the horizon, researchers around the world are coming together in a remarkable show of collaboration to achieve one common goal: end Alzheimer's now.
The momentum is there, but the missing factor is public awareness: an estimated 80% of all research studies fail to meet their recruitment goals, resulting in delayed answers! If scientists can't gather a critical mass of people to participate in research studies, we won't be able to make progress in the search for a cure.
Take the pledge to spread the word about Alzheimer's prevention research studies.
Today, those working to end Alzheimer's disease are part of history in the making. We have reached a pivotal point in the path toward Alzheimer's prevention, and now is the time to act.
From birthdays and graduations, to weddings and children, our lives are filled with precious memories. Alzheimer's has the power to erase them - but you have the power to fight back.
Take the pledge to spread the word about Alzheimer's prevention research studies. Let your voice be heard -- the memories you save could be your own.
