September – World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month!

Grayline Research Center was founded on the premise of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease – and we have not forgotten our roots! We continue to participate in Alzheimer’s Disease clinical research, hoping that there will one day be a breakthrough to help fight this ugly disease!

If you know someone or are the caretaker of someone who has, or you suspect may have Alzheimer’s, please call us today to learn more about our AD studies!
