Be Part of the Generation that Cures Alzheimer’s
Clinical trials are an essential part of Alzheimer’s disease research, and volunteers who participate in clinical trials help make advances in prevention and new treatments possible. Several NEW clinical trials are underway in Tennessee. Now you have the opportunity to take part in research that could help prevent and cure Alzheimer’s.
VRG/NOCCR in Knoxville is one of the Novartis research sites across the world that is part of the Generation Program. They are looking for individuals who are 60 to 75 years of age and currently show no signs of cognitive impairment. Do something unforgettable today and find out if you — or someone you love — could be a part of the Generation that prevents and cures Alzheimer’s!
“The previous generation is known as the greatest generation,” says Janice Wade-Whitehead, President and CEO of Alzheimer’s Tennessee. “But the baby boomers could be known as the generation that makes the greatest impact to cure Alzheimer’s, one of the most dreaded diseases of our time.”
VRG/NOCCR is housed in the UT Medical Center. Call (865)305-DRUG (3784).
