Educating the Public, One Speaking Engagement at a Time

Posted April 23, 2017

Massachusetts General Hospital’s Rudy Tanzi, Ph.D., Chair of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund’s Research Consortium, has been at the forefront of Alzheimer’s research for decades. But most recently, he has given interviews to many significant media outlets, helping to educate the general public about the growing threat of this debilitating disease.

During the past few months, Tanzi was featured in a PBS documentary “Alzheimer’s: Every Minute Counts”; spoke at a TEDx conference in Natick, Massachusetts; and was part of CBS, FOX, NBC and CNBC news broadcasts.

“Rudy has always gone above and beyond to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and our organization,” said Tim Armour, President and CEO of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. “His message to the public about the need for increased research to get to a cure could not have come at a more critical time. We are fortunate to have Rudy leading our efforts to fight this disease.”
