UsAgainstAlzheimer’s: Power of Us

Say Hello to BrainGuide

UsAgainstAlzheimer’s is engaged in a relentless pursuit to end Alzheimer’s, the sixth leading killer in America. Our work centers on prevention, early detection and diagnosis, and access to treatments – all regardless of gender, race, or ethnicity. To achieve our mission, we give voice to patients and caregivers while partnering with government, scientists, the private sector, and allied organizations -- the people who put the “Us” in UsAgainstAlzheimer’s.

Prevention

Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. There are things we can all do to reduce our risk, like eating a healthy diet, exercising, and getting good sleep. People need to know what’s good for the body is good for the brain. Learn more about our prevention work and how you can take charge of your brain health.

Early Detection & Diagnosis

Early detection and diagnosis give people a better chance of managing the disease. On top of that, current treatments are most effective with patients in the early stages of dementia.

Find out how we are raising awareness of the importance of early detection and how BrainGuide is helping people concerned about their brain health start a conversation with their doctor.

Access to Treatments

We are working on multiple fronts to get safe and effective treatments into the hands of people who need them most. That includes working to ensure Alzheimer’s patients are treated fairly as the federal government considers drug approval and Medicare coverage for treatments.
