Fine-Tuning the Brain: Early Detection and Prevention of Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Promising results of new study to be presented at exclusive event in New Jersey on August 15.

The event will take place in Englewood, New Jersey on August 15 at 7:30 p.m., and is being hosted by Arlene and Frederick Horowitz and Eden and Jeff Aronoff.

Herzog Medical Center stands at the forefront of medical excellence, being Israel’s foremost hospital for geriatric medicine, rehabilitation, mental health and psychotrauma, and brain science research. The center’s commitment to pioneering research and compassionate care is further exemplified by the special Chronic Respiratory Care unit for children on ventilators. This department provides 24/7 care for children ages three months to 18 years, with additional wings catering to the needs of more than 200 patients across the adolescent and adult population.

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia pose significant challenges to individuals and their families worldwide. The quest for early detection and prevention has been at the heart of medical research, and Dr. Meiron’s work is at the cutting-edge of this pursuit.

During the event, Dr. Meiron will share the results of an ongoing study that stands as among the most promising non-invasive advances in Alzheimer’s science. This research aims to identify the disease before symptoms manifest, enabling future treatments to target Alzheimer’s in its earliest stages before mental decline occurs.

The clinical trials conducted at Herzog Hospital’s Clinical Research Center for Brain Sciences have already shown success in pre-diagnosing dementia and improving memory function and cognition. This represents a glimmer of hope for those affected by Alzheimer’s and their loved ones.

While Herzog has made significant progress, there is still much to do. To continue this crucial study for another year, Herzog urgently needs to raise $130,000. Your generous support can make a tangible difference in advancing Alzheimer’s research and helping us get closer to a future where early detection and prevention are possible.

Herzog Medical Center invites the community to this captivating and informative evening with Dr. Oded Meiron. To receive the event address and RSVP, please contact Beth Nussbaum, director of development, via email at [email protected] or by calling 212-683-3702.
