Clinical Trials Awareness Day

May 20, 2020

May 20th is Clinical Trials Awareness Day! Many experts believe Alzheimer’s research is nearing a breakthrough, and Alzheimer’s scientists are working hard to keep up the momentum towards a cure despite COVID-19. Diversity is essential to our studies. To find a cure that works for everyone with Alzheimer’s, we need a diverse group of participants in clinical trials. Despite being disproportionately impacted by Alzheimer’s, African Americans and Hispanics make up less than 10% of Alzheimer’s clinical trial volunteers. We need people of color to join clinical trials! If you are over age 50 the best way to support local Alzheimer’s researchers is to join the APT Webstudy: https://www.aptwebstudy.org/en/welcome
