UMaine mentioned in PPH editorial lauding Alzheimer’s research

The Portland Press Herald mentioned the University of Maine in its editorial about Northern Light Health’s initiative to research Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive diseases related to aging. “In the oldest state in the nation, finding a cure has never been more important,” the editorial board wrote. “Maine is a good location for such research, not only because of our high percentage of seniors but also because the study can reach lower-income, rural Americans in a way researchers say doesn’t always happen.” The research, done in partnership with The Jackson Laboratory, the University of Maine and the state’s major hospital networks, will be housed at Acadia Hospital in Bangor. Residents throughout the state can take part. The Morning Sentinel/Kennebec Journal also ran the editorial.
