Alzheimer's research Archives - Greenwald and Gerke Real Estate
Are you familiar with the Alzheimer’s research efforts that are happening here in San Diego? We interviewed Jamie Tyrone, the founder for B.A.B.E.S, which stands for Beating Alzheimer’s By Embracing Science. Jamie founded this organization after she found out that she had a 91% genetic risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease. This genetic status is only found in about 2% of the population worldwide. After Jaime had found out, she realized that she had a choice to feel down about the potential risk of Alzheimer’s in the future, or she could find meaning in the situation to help other people.
What is B.A.B.E.S?
The B.A.B.E.S organization is designed to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research, as well as spread awareness about the importance of research for this disease. Jamie’s goal is to capture the energy of women in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
Research efforts for Alzheimer’s disease should happen before the diagnosis. Doctors can do scanning and testing in healthy individuals as well as people with a genetic risk of the disease, and then use this information to help people who have been diagnosed.
Alzheimer’s Research in San Diego
San Diego is a hotbed of research, making it a great location for people who want to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease. So, there are many opportunities for people who are both diagnosed and undiagnosed who want to be involved in the research efforts.
Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, being a participant in the research is not only altruistic, but it is also an opportunity to increase the likelihood of a cure. If you or a family member is diagnosed in the future, then a cure could help to restore your family.
Are you interested in how you can get involved in this effort? Contact Jamie with questions that you have about the organization and research opportunities in the area. You can visit her website at https://alzbabes.org to learn about the ways that you can participate.
