Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. It affects more than 20 million American individuals, families and caregivers.


Since 1998, WAI has been a transformational leader in Alzheimer’s disease research, outreach, and clinical and community services delivery for people with dementia and their families. We collaborate with partners across the University, the state, and the world, to help translate research into practice to extend the benefits of the University to the borders of the state and beyond. With a focus on reducing health disparities, our goal is to improve health and quality of life for all older adults with dementia and their families through research, education, provision of community programs and clinical care.
