Veterans are at an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease. The goal of the BRAVE study is to find out if a prescription strength dose of fish oil can stop or delay early brain changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
We are looking for:
- Veterans eligible for care at the VA
- 50 – 75 years old
- No clinical diagnosis of a memory disorder
- Parental history of Alzheimer’s disease
