AARP Invests $60M in the Dementia Discovery Fund

With nearly 10 million new cases of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease occurring each year, and no cure, this week AARP launched a new campaign, “Disrupt Dementia.” The campaign aims to help drive new diagnostics and treatments for dementias while providing education, support and hope for patients and family caregivers impacted by the physical, emotional and financial stress of dementia. This massive effort aligns perfectly with The Ivey's longstanding mission. The centerpiece of the campaign is AARP’s new $60 million investment in the Dementia Discovery Fund, the first and largest venture fund focused on discovering and developing effective new drugs for treating dementia.
