The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center receives Grant from
Illinois Department of Public Health

ICRN Logo

The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center, in Chicago, has received a grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health called
ILBrainHealth.org: A Next Generation Alzheimer’s Service Awareness Platform.

The overall goal of this project is to expand the Illinois Cognitive Resource Network’s web platform, ILBrainHealth.org, as an online tool to educate Illinoisans of the early warning signs and/or symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other related dementias (ADRD) and to increase the awareness of the public and private services available in Illinois to those living with or at risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.

We could use your help.

Over the next several months, we will be holding numerous online workshops to learn how people use the web to find information on dementia and how we can improve this site to be a robust and reliable resource on dementia for everyone in Illinois. We will be meeting with people from groups that are often underrepresented – younger onset dementia, the black and brown community and the rural community.

An Advisory Board of Dementia Experts from across the state will also be giving direction to the website.

Anyone, though, can help with this project. Soon we will be sharing a survey to see what topics are important for our website. Subscribe to our website to receive news and updates. Also, feel free to send suggestions to info@ilbrainhealth.org.

It will take all of us working together to create the “Next Generation Alzheimer’s Service Awareness Platform”.
