The Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease in Western New York (CEAD-WNY) was recently awarded by the New York State Department of Health to the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.

 The mission of the CEAD-WNY, which is a partnership between the Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center and the Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, is to significantly improve the screening, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias by providing state of the art person-centered care and educating primary care providers, patients and their caregivers in Western New York. It will also help educate future medical professionals about dementia and geriatrics in general, which are becoming increasingly important as the population ages.

The CEAD-WNY is based on a tiered model of care delivery to improve the continuity of care across our communities. Patients will benefit from early and accurate screening, diagnosis and treatment provided by their primary care provider (PCP). The UB Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders Center provides comprehensive state of the art specialty evaluation and treatment and access to clinical trials. Referrals to geriatric specialists can also be made.
