Measuring Impact of EducationAlzU.org is the first website designed to measure the impact of AD education. Education is one of the most powerful defenses against AD, and we offer the most cutting-edge information on prevention & treatment, brain-healthy nutrition & lifestyle choices, and caregiving.
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 $10, $50, $100 and beyond, every $1 will be used to help countless people in need of AD education and support online, while also advancing AD education research.
