The Rocky Mountain Alzheimer's Disease Center (RMADC) has a new name! The Center is now called the University of Colorado Alzheimer's and Cognition Center.
The new name reflects the broad reach of the Center, including innovative research and patient care. It better represents the work of more than 50 professionals affiliated with the CU Department of Neurology in two key places -- the Memory Disorders Clinic, in cooperation with the University of Colorado Hospital, and the University of Colorado Alzheimer's and Cognition Center research laboratories at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
While Alzheimer's disease is the most common and recognized cause of dementia, there are many other diseases and conditions that affect thinking and brain health. Adding the word "cognition" to our title encompasses the full breadth of our research and clinical expertise, including our focus on healthy brain aging.
Healthy Brain Aging Starts Here!
