Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease

We’ve never before enjoyed a time when so many are living so long. This means the need for geriatricians and geroscience research is critical and growing. Wake Forest Baptist is an international leader in Alzheimer’s disease research and home to the J. Paul Sticht Center, one of the nation’s only freestanding centers dedicated to better understanding what happens in aging and to developing better systems of care for the elderly. If improving the lives of aging populations or those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and their families is deeply important to you, we have a place where you can connect and make a difference.

There are numerous opportunities to support our aging and Alzheimer’s program; we have listed only a few. If you’d like to discuss these or other ways to connect, Erin McKenzie would be happy to talk with you.
