Apr 01, 2015

Philanthropy Advisory Service


The need is staggering. Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and currently, more than 5.5 million Americans are living with this disease for which there is yet no cure yet.

This guide is aimed at enhancing public understanding of the disease, and the current state of research and the current barriers to progress. Its further purpose is to outline ways in which philanthropy can advance a cure for AD, to trigger additional AD research efforts, tools and funding, and to increase public awareness of AD and its onset and progression.
