We hope you had a Valentine’s Day that made you feel loved and special. Now that we are finished showering others with love, let’s focus on some love for ourselves. In this edition of Alzheimer’s Research News You Can Use, we highlight ways you can reduce your Alzheimer’s risk.

Our first article teaches you how keeping your blood pressure under control can reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, while our second article warns how obesity in mid-life might be tied to an increased risk. Here at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research, we recognize how important it is to take control of your health, not only to combat Alzheimer’s, but to prevent other diseases as well

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the research progress being made at the Fisher Center.
