Unveiling the Georgetown Brain Study

Committed to empowering brain health, our initiative brings together 900 initial volunteers. We’re on a mission to expand to 5,000, paving the way for everyone to age well with a healthy brain. Discover why we’re a community laboratory supporting clinical scientists and shedding light on the path to a healthier future.

Grassroots Initiative for Brain Empowerment

We chose the brain as our focus, recognizing that nearly half of those reaching 75 will face neurodegenerative diseases. From Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s, our initiative aims to address these challenges. Join us on this methodical journey inspired by the Framingham Heart Study, where community-led efforts transformed the understanding of heart health.

Powering Change Through Partnerships

Revolutionizing brain health requires collective effort. We’re proud to partner with esteemed institutions like the University of Texas System’s research arms, including the Dell Medical Center and the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences. Their support and expertise propel our mission forward.
