Mind Your Body

A major mission of the AD Foundation is to inform you about advances in basic research that have been shown to be effective in preventing Alzheimer’s disease (AD), focusing on those that can be easily and immediately implemented into your lifestyle. Our Scientific Advisory Board continuously monitors the scientific literature, and we distill these findings into a few manageable recommendations. Our goal is to translate these scientific advances into easy-to-understand language, while also citing the primary literature. Here are our top suggestions for physical activities that can keep your memory strong and help stave off AD.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty—otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

– Buddha

Our current fundraising goal is: $35,000
