Measuring Impact of EducationAlzU.org is the first website designed to measure the impact of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) education. Education is one of the most powerful defenses against AD, and we offer the most cutting-edge information on AD prevention & treatment, brain-healthy nutrition & lifestyle choices, and caregiving.
Make a DifferenceYou can make a difference in the fight against AD today - Click Here to Donate. 100% of your tax-deductible gift will be used to improve our efforts to improve AD education for family members at risk, caregivers, and people with AD.
AlzU.org has been made possible through charitable donations from the public, grateful patients of our Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic (Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Program), and an unrestricted educational research grant. We are indebted to all our supporters – from $5, $10, $50 and beyond, every $1 that is contributed will help us reach at least 5 people in need of AD education and support online, while also advancing AD education research.
