Interested in Participating in a Short Survey about Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease?

We have been asked by a student to assist him with a case study for one of his classes. His focus is the topic of early onset Alzheimer’s disease as that is what his Aunt was affected by. We decided to open this through our blog in hopes that some of you might want to take the survey. It is short, about 10 questions.

This survey will be used for an AP Research project based on early/young-onset Alzheimer’s. The project will look into the diagnosing and caretaking of early/young-onset Alzheimer’s patients in the United States and if they should receive more government funding. The answers submitted on this survey will be used as completely confidential and the respondent’s privacy will be upheld. Please answer all questions honestly so this survey can be used as accurate data.

It’s Nearly Impossible to Diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease in Living People. Bill Gates Wants to Change That

Bill Gates, who decided to invest $100 million in Alzheimer’s disease research in 2017 and revealed earlier this year that his father was affected by the disease, is now directing some of that commitment to developing a diagnostic test. Such a test would help the 14 million people expected to be affected by the brain disorder in the U.S. by 2050 with the chance to come to terms with their condition, and perhaps, if new treatments are developed, even take advantage of these therapies as early as possible.

Gates announced that he is committing more than $30 million to the Diagnostics Accelerator, a project with the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF), that will focus on creating new strategies for diagnosing the disease. Gates is joined by Leonard Lauder, co-founder of the Alzheimer’s Drug Discover Foundation, the Dolby Family and the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation among others in the effort.
