Listen to the Interview Below

Lori La Bey hosts of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio talks with Brooks Kenny the Executive Director of the Women’s Network at UsAgainstAlzheimer’s.  She is also the General Manager for BrainGuide.  This program is UsAgainstAlzheimer’s newest initiative focusing on bringing state-of-the-art technology to consumers across the country that are worried about their or a loved one’s brain health.

BrainGuide by UsAgainstAlzheimer’s is a first-of-its-kind platform that empowers people with knowledge and
resources to take the best next steps in managing their own or a loved one’s brain health.


BrainGuide can help whether you’re interested in protecting your brain health, you’ve been diagnosed with mild
cognitive impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer’s, or you’re concerned about a family member.


BrainGuide begins with an automated, confidential self-administered memory questionnaire, developed with input
from memory experts, that can be taken on behalf of yourself or someone you care about. Once you complete the
questionnaire, BrainGuide offers tailored education and resources to help you find the best next steps in your or a
loved one’s brain health journey. BrainGuide does not provide a diagnosis.


UsAgainstAlzheimer’s worked in close collaboration with medical, technology, and industry experts to innovate and
carefully create BrainGuide. BrainGuide was developed with in-kind and financial support from Biogen. The platform
runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), using state-of-the-art technologies to power the memory questionnaire
capability and make it available to anyone with a telephone or internet access. BrainGuide is part of the long-term
commitment from UsAgainstAlzheimer’s to ensuring that no one is lost to Alzheimer’s disease.


Alzheimer’s Speaks is pleased to share this new platform and its important work. We encourage you to take the
first step in acting on your brain health today by visiting MyBrainGuide.org or calling 855-BRAIN-411.

Brooks Kenny has spent her career applying marketing and business know-how to social causes and has become a national speaker on women’s brain health, Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving.
