N.C. A&T biology professor Goldie Byrd conducts research on Alzheimer's Disease.
Goldie Byrd PhD, an A&T biology professor and Alzheimer's researcher, is leading the initiative to educate diverse communities on the affects of Alzheimer's disease.
Byrd's research, which focuses on genetics, "requires thousands of individuals who have the disease and thousands of individuals who don't and which we are still reaching out for those people," she said. The genetics project is a way to study the genome pool and identify the differences of those with and without the disease.
"As we went into communities to talk to people about joining us in our study, we realized that there was such a dirk of knowledge about the disease so we began to conceptualize an outreach and educational awareness project and that's where Keeping Memories Alive can from," said Byrd, director of A&T's Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement.
Byrd said her studies have proven that blacks develop Alzheimer's at twice the rate of whites and Hispanics develop it one and a half times more than whites. But, she has also made clear, "This outreach is for all people - black, Hispanic, white, Asian - whoever is available to learn and who is willing to understand what's going on."
"They are well connected with individuals who have personal history around Alzheimer's Disease," Byrd said.
