Brain Health Partnership: Scientists believe that the brain changes seen in Alzheimer’s and dementia may begin many years before symptoms appear, so it is more important than ever that we treat our brains as vital organs and pay attention to our brain health. UsAgainstAlzheimer’s Brain Health Partnership works to promote brain health with innovative collaborators.
