Introducing the Young Onset Alzheimer's and Related Disorders Program
The Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center is now offering the Young Onset Alzheimer's and Related Disorders (YoADRD) Program to persons diagnosed with ADRD before age 65. Read this Washington Post story to learn about how YoADRD impacts individuals and families.
In order to address gaps and expand services and research addressing YoADRD to the San Diego region and beyond, The D.H. Chen Foundation awarded funding to Dr. Douglas Galasko and colleagues to establish a YoADRD program that provides clinical assessment, social work and research opportunities for persons with YoADRD and their families. This multidisciplinary program is designed to respond to the unique challenges faced by families coping with YoADRD by providing individualized resources and referrals in English and Spanish.
