"A cure for Alzheimer’s: a fantasy, a wish, an impossible dream—the same words that were said to Galileo, Edison, Curie, Salk, and whoever dreamed up the internet. Yesterday’s dream is today’s reality."

Co-Founder, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s

Voices of Alzheimer's

The On Pluto Podcast

Journalist Greg O’Brien was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s when he was 59 years old. The On Pluto Podcast chronicles Greg’s journey with this disease. It is a production of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s and the A-LIST.

We must increase public- and private-sector investment in research

to achieve the audacious but attainable goal of stopping Alzheimer's disease.

Take action now.

Caregiver Support

Our private Facebook support group is a welcoming, warm, safe place for dementia caregivers to ask questions, share stories and advice, and connect with caregivers all over the country who are facing similar challenges.
