Alzheimer’s Initiative   
Alzheimer’s Initiative is a mobile app for caregivers, Alzheimer’s patients, and individuals who believe they could be at risk with Alzheimer’s. We hope to provide convenient risk assessment testing for users, to promote awareness of the disease, and enhance the quality of life of both patients and caregivers. The app will bridge the gap between health care professionals and patients allowing for better communication and faster prognoses by providing a simple solution to track, manage, and communicate symptoms.
