With Independence Day a week away, the Fisher Center team would like to wish you and your loved ones a safe and joyous holiday!

In this edition of Alzheimer’s Research News You Can Use, we take closer look at the effects of frailty and hypertension as they pertain to Alzheimer’s.

In our first article, find out the results of studies focused on older frail adults and how frailty could trigger neurological problems like Alzheimer’s.  There seems to be a little gleam of hope since frailty is potentially reversible, it could be possible to maintain function and independence later in life.

In our second article, learn about the findings in a new study that suggests older women and men with hypertension who received intensive treatment to lower their blood pressure were at lower risk of developing memory problems, heart attacks and strokes, but also may have benefits for the brain.

To learn more about the aforementioned research, please read the expert-reviewed articles and for more information about Alzheimer’s; please visit our website at www.alzinfo.org.

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

Together we can end Alzheimer’s.
