WAI Milwaukee’s research and AA-FAIM study featured on Spectrum News 1

The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute’s Regional Milwaukee Office and its research programs are featured in a segment broadcast on Spectrum News 1. The news report interviews a participant enrolled in African Americans Fighting Alzheimer’s in Midlife (AA-FAIM) study and describes the health disparities in Alzheimer’s disease. AA-FAIM is a sub-study of the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP), designed to understand how mid-life modifiable risk factors impact African Americans at risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

Celena Ramsey is a WAI research specialist who works in the WAI Regional Milwaukee Office. Their research program is working to help participants and community members connect with resources for support and brain health, she said. “We know quality of care is different in different areas, different communities. A lot of people are not receiving those services,” Ramsey said.
