Citizen Scientist Awards Ceremony

June 21, 2019

 

We held an afternoon Tea to recognize our Citizen Scientist Award nominees on June 20, 2019.

The Global Alzheimer’s Platform Foundation (GAP) created a first-of-its-kind award to celebrate Alzheimer’s disease clinical trial participants. The only way to find treatments and cures for Alzheimer’s is through clinical trials and these volunteers make that research possible.

As a GAP-Net site we have submitted two nominations for the Citizen Scientists® award. From all the nominations across the U.S. and Canada, three selected winners will be recognized at the annual UsAgainstAlzheimer’s National Summit in Washington, DC, held in the October.

The Mayor of the City of Methuen, MA, Jim Jajuga, joined us to celebrate these nominees and to present his own Mayor Citation, in recognition of their participation. 

Mayor Jajuga also spoke about the partnership between the city of Methuen and ActivMed. We are working together to make Methuen, Dementia Friendly and Age Friendly.

Congratulations to Robert Brown and Sharon Sundberg on being chosen for this award! We commend your efforts to support local research and participate in a trial. 

Robert Brown was nominated for the Champion award. By participating in the Walks to End Alzheimer’s and working with Veterans in the community, he is bringing awareness to the community. He and his wife always have a smile and a joke ready, and have become part of the ActivMed family.

Sharon Sundberg was nominated for the Cornerstone award. Sharon has made extraordinary efforts to participate, traveling nearly three hours to our site for each visit! Her goal is to help future generations through her participation.

Thank you both for your commitment and participation from all of us at ActivMed!
