Active for Alzheimer’s Tierney Henderson and Marie Balfour Interview with Dr. Jay Sordean
Active for Alzheimer’s is a new group to Dr. Jay Sordean, Here he interviews two UC Berkeley student leaders of Active for Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Jay speaks with co-chairs Tierney Henderson and Marie Balfour about their group’s important volunteer activities on and off campus. UC Berkeley student club Active for Alzheimer’s (a chapter of The Youth Movement Against Alzheimer’s) is led by co-chairs, Tierney Henderson and Marie Balfour. With both personal and academic experience with Alzheimer’s disease, they realize that most young people have difficulty understanding and connecting with diseases that primarily affect the elderly. In this interview, they detail their club’s efforts to bridge this cognitive gap by connecting UC Berkeley students with opportunities to learn about and work toward the Alzheimer’s cause. They are currently raising funds for an undergraduate scholarship fund for Alzheimer’s research labs, as they hope to incentivize more talented young people to enter research careers in Alzheimer’s.

On a personal note, Dr. Jay was struck by the fact that both UC Berkeley students are passionate about helping spread the word to youth about the seriousness of Alzheimer’s and how research support and training needs to start at the undergraduate level. He wants to support their efforts as they have created a scholarship fund to support this; you can donate to this worthy cause at http://www.gofundme.com/the_youth_movement. This is in alignment with his mission to help prevent a million cases of Alzheimer’s.
