Supporting research, education and health equity
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are working to improve the lives of people affected by this devastating diagnosis. Our cutting-edge science is finding new strategies to slow, delay, and prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s symptoms, while specialized education and outreach programs support families and dementia caregivers, improve early diagnosis, and work to reduce health disparities in underserved communities.
Together, we can improve lives and build a future without Alzheimer’s disease — in Wisconsin and beyond.
