A special message from Andrew W. Albstein

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

After several years on the board of the New York City Alzheimer’s Association, I have now changed focus and I am committed to see contributions to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation at The Rockefeller University.  One hundred (100%) percent of the amounts raised go directly to Alzheimer’s research – funds that are necessary at this key point in the many attempts to find drugs to treat or cure this dreadful disease.  I ask that you join me.

As you may know, my mother suffers from Alzheimer’s and my grandfather died from this unrelenting disease.  I devoted several years to the Alzheimer’s Association, which provided programs for those families in need.  I now believe that the best way to help the afflicted, and those soon to be diagnosed, is through research.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation at The Rockefeller University, under the guidance of Dr. Paul Greengard (a Nobel Laureate), is a leading source for Alzheimer’s research and education, sponsoring over fifty research projects, as well as serving Alzheimer’s patients and their families by seeking to understand the causes of, discover a cure for, and improve the lives of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

On May 20, 2013, I will be hosting at the Goldberg Weprin offices an event that I intend to prove memorable, honoring Dr. Paul Greengard and several of the unbelievably dedicated scientists devoting their lives to understanding research.  In addition to hearing from Dr. Greengard, the scientists will address their research.  It will be a most enlightening evening.  There may also be an opportunity to share “work stories” and, possibly, some entertainment.

My family and I will be most grateful if you will contribute and attend.  We look forward to your participation and, hopefully, to seeing you on May 20, 2013. Thank you.
