The James M. Dixon Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization with a mission to support research that will eradicate Alzheimer’s disease; increase awareness of the disease and its risk factors; provide information on preventative measures; support Caregivers; and enhance the lives of persons living with Alzheimer’s disease, especially underserved individuals and in under supported areas.
Currently, there is no known cure for Alzheimer's disease. However, according to Us Against Alzheimer's, there is strong evidence that people can reduce or prevent their risk of cognitive decline. The Foundation believes that it is time to replace fear, frustration, despair and disappointment with determination and hope. Through various programs and activities, The James M. Dixon Foundation seeks to provide awareness, support, and resources to help reduce cognitive decline and provide hope to the Alzheimer's and related dementia community. The James M. Dixon Foundation visions a world free from Alzheimer’s disease. To that end, The Foundation works locally and nationally to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and the effects it has on persons suffering from the disease and those who care for them, through strategic community engagement, training, policy development, support and more.
