The A4 Study is Now Enrolling at the Penn Memory Center
If you are a healthy older adult with normal memory, now is the time to join the fight to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
The A4 study is a historic clinical trial for older individuals who may be at risk for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The study aims to prevent the memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
You can read more about the study and the eligibility requirements at the A4 Study website.
Do you have a passion, talent, or skill that you would like to share with others?
Research tells us that cognitive stimulation and social engagement are key components to successful aging. The Penn Memory Center is pleased to provide a platform for our patients and community to come together and learn from one another. If you would like to volunteer to lead a book club or a discussion group, teach knitting, lead a yoga class, or share another skill with others at the Penn Memory Center, we are happy to host, promote and provide some administrative assistance to transform your interest into action.
Interested volunteers should contact Felicia Greenfield at 215-614-1828 or email@example.com.
