BrainGuide by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s was created to help people of all ages and from all communities understand brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, and empower them to take action. We know that millions of people worry about their own memory or that of a loved one. BrainGuide provides confidential memory questionnaires that can be self-administered or taken on behalf of a loved one – in English and Spanish – online at mybrainguide.org or by phone. Once the questionnaire is complete, BrainGuide offers tailored resources based on the answers provided. Built with expertise from medical experts and community leaders, BrainGuide helps people take their first step in their brain health journey.

The headline on the UCHealth Today blog posting summed it up: “First FDA-approved drug offers both promise and challenges.” This was in reference to Leqembi (generic name: lecanemab), a drug designed to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
