At Banner Alzheimer's Institute, Dr. Jessica Lanbaum says, "people who join the registry really will be on the cutting edge. They'll be kept informed of the latest news and information, as well as be the first to hear whether prevention trials are open and looking for volunteers to participate."
The goal for the Alzheimer's Prevention Registry is 100,000 Americans by next year. It will focus on both experimental treatments and lifestyle changes designed to prevent alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's Disease is the sixth leading cause of death in this country and the only one in the top ten with no effective treatment or cure.
