Our Nation has a goal, promote healthy aging and reduce the risk factors for dementia, and so do we: in 10 years, reduce new cases of dementia by 15% by mitigating risk factors, with a focus on groups of people who are disproportionately affected. When we succeed, an estimated half-million fewer Americans will be living with dementia.


We are uniting leading private sector companies and institutions to optimize cognitive health.

Prevention and Brain Health


One out of every three dementia cases are preventable. To prevent dementia, we need to reduce the risk of getting it and promote strategies that optimize brain health over the lifespan. Effective strategies include lifestyle approaches such as physical activity, nutrition and sleep, and addressing other conditions that increase risk of cognitive impairment, including obesity, hypertension, and hearing loss. Building brain health not only promotes healthy cognition and longevity, but also generated greater economic competitiveness, empowerment, equity, and social resilience.  

Here is how UsAgainstAlzheimer’s is doing this:

  • Equip health and wellness professionals with the knowledge and resources to help people reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
  • Employ the innovation and reach of the private sector, by advancing measurably effective brain healthy workplaces, communities, and product and service innovations.
  • Advance change at scale through strategic policy action that improves prevention, treatment, and management for major dementia risk factors, such as hypertension, obesity, physical inactivity, depression, and hearing loss.
