Banner Alzheimer’s Institute GeneMatch Prevention Study informational session


You can help find an end to Alzheimer’s disease with a simple cheek swab

GeneMatch is a national program led by the Banner Alzheimer's Institute that recruits participants for Alzheimer’s prevention studies using genetic testing (through free cheek swab kits) to match volunteers with research opportunities. GeneMatch advances Alzheimer’s research by helping scientists find enough qualified participants to launch new studies.

You must be between the ages of 55-75 with normal memory and thinking abilities to participate

Banner Alzheimer’s Institute will be offering GeneMatch swabbing sessions at the community summit. Clinical Trials staff will be on hand from noon to 1 p.m. to help you complete the on-line registration process and to assist you with swabbing.
