Title: Evaluating the effectiveness of Web-based Alzheimer's disease education on knowledge and behavior: A Randomized Trial

Required Summary:
The objectives of this study are to determine the effect of written blog stories vs. interactive webinars on performance on pre/post learning, and brain-healthy lifestyle patterns, in subjects interested in learning about Alzheimer's disease. In lay terms, we aim to evaluate the effectiveness of the 'typical' way people learn medical information related to Alzheimer's disease (e.g., reading blog posts and/or articles on the internet) vs. a more 'active' style of learning via interactive webinars with audio (exploring the power of a narrative)
