UsAgainstAlzheimer's: Working to End Alzheimer's Disease  

The Alzheimer’s pandemic is one of the most significant health and social economic crises of this generation. It is a national and global emergency that has a devastating health, social and economic toll on millions of people living with this disease, their families and caregivers.

UsAgainstAlzheimer’s exists to conquer Alzheimer’s disease. Since our founding in 2010, we have taken on the toughest problems in the fight to end Alzheimer’s.

In the past decade, progress has been made, with more hope on the horizon now than ever before.

But every day of delay is another day lost to the millions of people affected by this devastating disease. If nothing changes, by 2050, 14 million Americans will be living with Alzheimer’s at an annual cost of more than $1 trillion. The time to act is now.
