Any research endeavor, regardless of its potential, is limited by the ability to enlist support from those willing to take part in the study process. The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry strives to overcome that hurdle by engaging individuals, 18 and older, of all races and ethnicities with or without a family history of the disease who are committed to ending Alzheimer’s.

Participants become part of an online community of people eager to learn about Alzheimer’s news and gain access to the latest information about research happenings and overall brain health. They become part of the conversation about Alzheimer’s through webinars and videos and are encouraged to share news and information through their own social circles and networks.

Joining the Registry provides an opportunity to help advance Alzheimer’s prevention research through education, advocacy and study participation. From simple questionnaires and surveys, to brain imaging studies and even pharmaceutical trials to evaluate investigational medications and therapies, there are many ways in which to participate. In no way does joining the Registry obligate a person to take part in a study or clinical trial. Rather, it opens the channels of communication to share information about research initiatives for which Registry members may be eligible and interested.

Each study has a defined set of eligibility requirements, which means not everyone will qualify for enrollment in a particular study. The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry, which has a goal of enrolling 250,000 people in the United States, supports participation in a variety of community-based prevention studies by creating a pool of interested individuals from which researchers can identify potential participants. All studies associated with the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry are approved by an ethics committee and ensure participants’ privacy and confidentiality.
