Please join us for our first ever ApoE4.Info Meet-up, May 27-28, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since most of us learned about our APOE ε4 status, we've been on a hunt for answers on how to best prevent both Alzheimer's and heart disease. We're taking our search to some of top experts in both the fields of neurology and cardiology. This is an amazing opportunity to meet and spend time with these researchers and clinicians who are hard at work on the APOE ε4 puzzle. Below is our itinerary.
