Healthy Aging Study

Your help is needed in the fight to overcome Alzheimer’s Disease. We want to build a better cognitive assessment, to do so, we need lots of data from healthy people to understand what healthy aging looks like.

Help Alzheimer’s research

The available assessment for dementia is complex, long and can be stressful. We are building better tools so that we can identify risk for dementia more quickly and at an earlier age. This will allow people to take a proactive stance against the illness and enable researchers to better understand the disease process.

Your help will be contributing to an effort to bring innovative technology to Alzheimer’s research. Winterlight Labs was found upon research from the University of Toronto and has been fortunate to gain support from institutions and private companies throughout Canada and the United States. You will be in good company.
