Butler Hospital launches Alzheimer's campaign PROVIDENCE – November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, and the Memory and Aging Program at Butler Hospital, a global leader in Alzheimer's disease research, is using the occasion to call on Rhode Islanders to help make Alzheimer's history through its ongoing #2020by2020RI campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise the number of participants in its Alzheimer's Prevention Registry to 2,020 by the start of 2020. The registry matches people who may be willing to participate in research with studies or trials for which they may qualify. Joining does not mean that participants are required to be part of any study, just that they are willing to be contacted if it appears they may be a good match for one. The registry is open to anyone ages 40 to 85 with normal memory or mild memory loss. Those inter- ested can join online at butler. org/ALZregistry, or by calling the Memory and Aging Program at 401- 455-6402. To learn more about the Memory and Aging Program, its Alzheimer's Prevention Registry and current research studies and clinical trials, visit butler.org/memory or call 401- 455-6402.
