About Us

Advocating for patients and families experiencing Alzheimer’s disease is a top priority of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. In 2016, the school founded the UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s (IEA) as the philanthropic home for the leading Alzheimer’s disease programs on campus. The UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s promotes and supports the complementary goals of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center

The IEA helps sustain a wide range of research projects, community education, caregiver support programs, and training for dementia care professionals and young scientists. Your donation stays at UW–Madison and funds programs and treatments for your friends, neighbors and family. A few of these programs include a statewide memory clinic network, a choir for people with dementia, brain health education events, free exercise classes, and summer research fellowships for high school students.

Learn about ways you can support these programs and more with a donation to the UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s.
