Learn about The Alzheimer’s Association U.S. Study to Protect Brain Health Through Lifestyle Intervention to Reduce Risk (U.S. POINTER).
The Alzheimer’s Association U.S. Study to Protect Brain Health Through Lifestyle Intervention to Reduce Risk (U.S. POINTER) is a two-year clinical trial to evaluate whether lifestyle interventions that simultaneously target many risk factors protect cognitive function in older adults who are at increased risk for cognitive decline. U.S. POINTER is the first such study to be conducted in a large group of Americans across the United States.

Richard received his undergraduate degree in Human Nutrition from University of Texas Austin and his Masters degree in Biochemistry and Nutrition from Virginia Tech. He spent more than 20 years in health care administration prior to joining the Alzheimer’s Association.
