About

DETECT: A Collaborative Early Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative

The goal of DETECT is to spread awareness and provide education on Alzheimer’s Disease, and MCI diagnosis.

DETECT is a comprehensive online resource for both clinicians and patients to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Early Alzheimer’s detection, recognition, and timely diagnosis are essential to facilitate long-term planning, lifestyle changes, and individualized treatment approaches for this neurodegenerative dementia. Our goal is to promote the early detection of Alzheimer’s Disease and to increase awareness of the benefits associated with the early detection and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. We also encourage the prompt initiation of multidisciplinary care. By gathering together key elements about cognitive screening tools and evolving data on existing and investigational therapies for AD, we hope to improve patient care and the communication—as well as collaboration—among patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers.
