Get to know us
The recently launched Nevada exploratory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (NVeADRC) is the first site funded by the National Institute on Aging in our western intermountain region devoted to research and care for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Our primary focus is understanding Alzheimer’s disease risk factors and outcomes in residents living in rural or small communities in Nevada and neighboring states.
We recognize that medical providers in small communities often have limited access to resources to comprehensively assess, protect, and promote the brain health of their patients.
A central aim of the NVeADRC is to be a no-cost extension of medical care for your patients who have cognitive concerns and provide you with specialized diagnostic information to aid in the treatment of your patients. We are also able provide education and support to persons living with dementia and their caregivers at no-cost.
Our ADRC’s research study can provide an opportunity for a specialized, comprehensive neurological evaluation for patients who:
- Report early or non-specific memory changes
- Have a family history of dementia
- Are interested in learning more about their brain health
- Demonstrate symptoms of mild dementia
Patients eligible for participation and referring providers will receive a detailed neurological summary annually, including:
- Neurological examination findings
- Cognitive testing
- MRI and interpretation
- Virtual consultation for medical providers with Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health neurologists
Please mention to your patients that a friend or family member is required to join them for study visits to obtain additional clinical information pertinent to the patient.
