On Tuesday, Sept. 24, those with memory impairment and their care partners or family members throughout the Chicago area are invited to board the glass-topped Odyssey Chicago boat for a dementia-friendly cruise on the Chicago River.
Great Lakes Clinical Trials is proud to announce that the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study’s T2 Protect AD Trial is a sponsor of this year’s event.
In addition to helping make this event as low-cost as possible for attendees (their contribution directly covers the full ticket value and transportation for the families and care partners), they’re giving attendees newly-made quilts from their Alzheimer’s Study Quilt Project.
