Karen began to question her own chances of developing Alzheimer’s while caring for her mother who was living with the disease. Knowing that she was searching for answers, a friend told Karen about Alzheimer’s clinical research that she was participating in at Progressive Medical Research in Port Orange, FL. Karen immediately reached out to the site and began the screening process to become a volunteer trial participant. She recently organized opportunities for groups of her friends to ask questions of Progressive’s own Dr. Marshall concerning Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and clinical trial participation. She even convinced twelve of her friends to get the cheek swab test at that event. With the bigger picture in mind, Karen is committed to continuing to push for an Alzheimer’s cure.
