Rockefeller Announces Groundbreaking Alzheimer's Disease Partnership at BRNI
Date:9/14/2009

Outreach and Registry Program Will Help Combat and Treat Alzheimer's

MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Senator Jay Rockefeller announced an unprecedented and powerful partnership to help combat and treat Alzheimer's disease in West Virginia. The Alzheimer's Outreach and Registry Program (AORP) at the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute (BRNI) at West Virginia University, brings together some of West Virginia's most important leaders in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. In addition to BRNI, the partners include the West Virginia Medical Foundation; the Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter; and the West Virginia Bureau of Senior Services. The launch of AORP is made possible through the sponsorship of the West Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association (WVCTA), led by Suddenlink, Comcast and Time Warner Cable. The statewide program has been in development for nearly two years thanks to funding by the state of West Virginia and the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.

For the more than 44,000 West Virginians (age 65 and over) who have Alzheimer's disease and the approximately 85,000 caregivers who care for them every day -- sometimes for more than a decade -- diagnosis, treatment and care during the progression of the disease is uncertain, confusing and catastrophically expensive. To meet these needs, BRNI has designed a unique program to intensify education and data collection aimed at physicians and other healthcare providers across West Virginia. The goal is to help physicians improve diagnosis and to insure their access to the latest in treatment of the disease. The program will also make certain that physicians and providers know how to connect families and caregivers to vital support networks in communities across the state.
