NARFE January
Thanks to the dedication of NARFE members, we're getting closer to our shared vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease. The total numbers are in, and the NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® national team incredibly raised $74,581! This counts towards NARFE's overall goal of $14M by December 2020! We're so happy to have partners who are committed to the fight against Alzheimer's. Thank you.

Part the Cloud grants take Alzheimer's research a step closer
Alzheimer's researchers believe that a variety of approaches will be needed — most likely in combination — for effective treatment of the disease. Through new grants from the Alzheimer's Association Part the Cloud Translational Research Initiative, scientists are evaluating the use of existing HIV/AIDS, diabetes and organ transplant drugs as possible therapies for Alzheimer's. The grants will also fund research on drugs that might alleviate, delay or slow the brain changes associated with the disease. Learn more.

Get the emotional support you need
Alzheimer's caregivers sometimes just need to know that someone understands what they're going through. Support groups feature social, educational and/or support components and are facilitated by individuals who have received training from the Alzheimer's Association. Find a support group near you today. Learn more.

Researcher focuses on enrolling Latinos in clinical trials
Assistant Harvard Medical School professor and researcher Yakeel Quiroz, Ph.D., frequently travels to her native Colombia to study a large family that carries a genetic mutation associated with younger-onset Alzheimer's. Dr. Quiroz believes the Hispanic/Latino community can accelerate Alzheimer's and dementia research. Learn more.

Stages of Alzheimer's affect people in different ways
Alzheimer's typically progresses slowly in three general stages: mild (early stage), moderate (middle stage) and severe (late stage). Each person living with the disease will experience its symptoms, or progress through its stages, differently. Learn more.
