My Day at a Memory Clinic

Share

By Max Wallack
Puzzles to Remember

I had an amazing day today. I had the opportunity to be in a hospital setting and be involved in memory clinic for veterans.

I also learned about quite a number of different clinical trials and drug combinations that are being tested to help Alzheimer’s patients.

It makes me feel hopeful because, if all this great work to find real help for Alzheimer’s patients is going on in just one hospital, then I know there must be thousands of smart researchers out there that are really trying to help.

Max Wallack is a student at Boston University Academy. His great grandmother, Gertrude Finkelstein, suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Max is the founder of PUZZLES TO REMEMBER , a 501(c.)3 charitable organization.
