OUR MISSION IS BETTER BRAIN HEALTH

More than 47 million people are living with Alzheimer’s worldwide. Doctors predict more than half of adults will be diagnosed with the disease by age 85. Despite the terrifying statistics, the truth is 90% of Alzheimer’s cases are preventable through lifestyle factors–and the younger we begin, the better.

WE ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION WITH

Research

Through our research and extensive collective medical backgrounds, we work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Education

Most people don’t understand brain health is in their hands. We host local workshops in community centers, churches — places where members of the community are known to congregate — to arm people with knowledge to improve brain health.

Mobilization

We involve local community leaders across all industries – government, civic, business, faith – and equip them with the best strategies to approach brain health education and implementation for their communities.
