As reported in Moultrie News, Roper St. Francis Research and Innovation Center is taking part in a national study that uses quarterly online memory testing to identify people who are at risk for Alzheimer’s disease. Called the Alzheimer’s Prevention Trials (APT) Webstudy, it aims to increase the enrollment of research participants by enlisting more than 50,000 healthy volunteers age 50+ who have not been diagnosed with a memory disorder and are interested in participating in clinical trials according to the Moultrie News.
