Great Lakes Clinical Trials is proud to announce that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has officially proclaimed November 8th as “Chicago Alzheimer's Awareness Day”. This proclamation is associated with a citywide event taking place at the Swedish American Museum on November 8th to help raise awareness about the disease and to honor those volunteers that have taken steps to participate in research studies to help find a treatment, cure or prevention.
“I am so proud to be a lifelong resident and business owner in the City of Chicago, which recognizes the tireless achievements of medical research clinics and more importantly, the local residents who volunteer take part in clinical trials,” commented Steve Satek, President of Great Lakes Clinical Trials and founder of the Memory Care Coalition. “Without the participation of our senior community in research studies, we will never find a treatment or cure for Alzheimer’s disease. We are grateful for those that volunteer their time to join trials at Great Lakes Clinical Trials, as well as our many other research centers across Chicagoland”.
