Develop an app and in addition to the traditional TrialMatch offering, create a platform for lifestyle tracking for all ages. This can be a passive feature (not related to a current research trial). The benefits of this are vast:
- It would provide a public health-related service (tracker for food/exercise/mood/lifestyle, etc.)
- Would create a much more engaged participation base
- Would amass data (with user consent, of course) that could be utilized for a large scale public health query to be used for future research trials Alzheimer's Disease is showing no signs of breaking any time soon, regardless of the amount of money now being funneled to it. In the age of Fitbits and other fitness trackers, there is no reason why we can't utilize that uploadable data to End Alzheimer's!
