Support Alzheimer’s legislative action
I am 15 years old, and my grandmother is one of the 5 million Americans living with Alz- heimer’s disease. In order to help patients like her, I developed a diagnostic tool for the early detection of Alzheimer’s that uses machine learning and de-identified patient data from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative.
But no amount of individual effort will be enough to end this disease. Instead, we must work together and strive to make public policy choices that advance Alzheimer’s research and patient care.
