Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of memory problems as we age. However, many things can impact our thinking over time. At HSC, we are working to find new and better ways to treat and prevent memory loss during the aging process. The research we do today aims to help future generations tomorrow.
Enroll in the Health and Aging Brain Study and you will receive a memory check-up, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and PET scan of the head at no cost. As a research participant, you will undergo memory tests, medical exam, interview, blood draw, an MRI and a PET scan of the head.
• You will be asked to repeat these procedures every 24 months.
