With money put up by Bill Gates, Leonard Lauder, the Dolby family, and the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation, a new $30 million venture fund addresses an obvious need in the fight against Alzheimers: Its a bit of a chicken and egg problem.
Equally important, though, is the fact that the coalition of donors has developed a perpetually beneficial way to dole it out: The money is earmarked for a new fund called the Diagnostic Acceleratorthat will be run through a partnership with the Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation, which Lauder co-founded.
In November 2017, he admitted that he has a family history of Alzheimers and committed $50 million to start the Dementia Discovery Fund toward finding new ways to expediting disease diagnosis, understanding, treatments, and eventual cures.More on Alzheimer

Often a good place to start is your family doctor who can assess the mood and help determine what next steps to take, she explains.More on Depression
