As some of you may know, two summers ago I spent time in Nebraska at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln researching stem cells and their potential to treat diseases. The lab I worked with specifically wants to treat Alzheimer's Disease. I was able to participate in research to battle the disease and saw first-hand how hard people are working for a treatment or cure. The money contributed through the Walk helps goes towards research and finding a cure.
As a rising junior in Bioengineering at Clemson, I learn daily about medical devices and treatments that can be used with diseases such as Alzheimers. I am an active member of Bioengineering by being a Student Ambassador where I give tours and on the Student Advisory Council where I help improve the student experience. My career aspirations are to work as a medical device consultant and help doctors use cutting-edge devices in the operating room. I can't wait to make a difference and LET'S END ALZ!
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
