Alzheimer's Early Detection Alliance
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


Alzheimer's disease is fast becoming one of the greatest medical challenges facing Americans today. We invite you to join the Alzheimer's Association Early Detection Alliance (AEDA) to help spread awareness of Alzheimer's disease. Our goal is to educate everyone about the warning signs of Alzheimer's, the importance of early detection, and the resources available to help them.

Your help is critical to our cause. When you join the AEDA, you are:

  • A reliable source of Alzheimer's information for those who need help
  • A vehicle to increase awareness of the 10 warning signs of
    Alzheimer’s disease
  • A positive force to improve the health of your company, organization
    or community
  • A part of a nationwide network of organizations that are addressing the Alzheimer's crisis
  • A leader in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease

Why early detection matters

Early detection of Alzheimer's is important for your employees as both individuals at risk and as caregivers for family members. Most people do not know when forgetting becomes a serious health problem. By putting off learning more, people impacted by Alzheimer's disease are being diagnosed too late and miss the opportunity to get the best help possible.

For more information about the AEDA, contact the Alzheimer's Early Detection Alliance at mailto:AEDA@alz.org or 573.443.8665.
