‘We’re offering hope to our communities,’ Dr. Sterling Johnson says in interview with Wausau television news station

In an interview with a Wausau television news station, Sterling Johnson, Phd, described how a recent renewal grant from National Institutes of Health (NIH)  supports avenues for more strides in research. The funding provides $35 million dollars for the next five years of the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP) study. This is a hopeful time in Alzheimer’s disease research, Johnson said. “We are offering hope to our communities and to the world about how this disease evolves and we’re offering an opportunity to intervene,” he said. “That is where I think we can make the biggest impact as a society.”
