Barb, Sigrid and Karen each had a mother with Alzheimer’s and witnessed first-hand the devastation wrought by the disease, not only on the mind and body, but on their family.The three are participating in a major research study at the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute at UW-Madison that tracks the health and memory of thousands of people over many years. “The researchers hunt for lifestyle changes and medicines that could improve all our chances and ultimately protect the brain and body from one of the world’s deadliest diseases,” a release says.
