On the heels of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, the Center for Outreach in Alzheimer’s Aging and Community Health (COAACH) at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has partnered with NC Registry for Brain Health to provide access to helpful information.

“This registry serves as a one-stop shop, providing community members with access to important resources and a chance to participate in ground-breaking research advancements,” said Dr. Grace Byfield, interim director of COAACH.

The registry is the first of its kind in the state that connects adults to nearby resources and research opportunities examining memory disorders. Individuals who join the registry also will learn more about managing, treating and preventing related conditions. Young adults are especially encouraged to participate in studies as researchers aim to identify early signs before symptoms appear.
