The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is funded by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health. The WADRC is one of only 30 federally-funded Alzheimer’s research centers in the country that is working individually and collaboratively to find answers that will lead to improved diagnosis and care for patients while, at the same time, focusing on finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
On this program, you will learn more about the WADRC, the research they are conducting, and the impact Alzheimer’s disease is having on families, caregivers and our nation’s health care system.
On Thursday, November 21 at Monona Terrace, the annual Wisconsin ADRC November Lecture, Aging Strong: Reducing Your Risk of Alzheimer’s, will be held. This is a free community event with a Resource Fair beginning at 5:00 p.m. with presentations at 6:00 p.m. by leading researchers who will share the latest information on what they have learned and you need to know about Alzheimer’s Disease.
