Hi DaleBru and welcome!

You will find a lot of great support here.

Thanks for proposing a meet-up! I am just wondering if you are thinking of an in-person meet-up or a virtual one using Zoom. We have a Zoom subscription and can fairly easily arrange virtual face-to-face meet-ups as well. I wasn't clear from your message which kind you were proposing.

Thanks for reaching out! Hopefully you will get a robust response.

Hi Grace,

I was thinking in-person, but I would also be very comfortable with Zoom. I would leave it up to the responders. Maybe a combination of both, even.

I'm age 70, thankfully in excellent health, and recently learned I am ApoE 3/4 as part of volunteering for the Generations study. My motivation for the MeetUp is to help people who are feeling anxiety about it (I don't but I understand why many are) and to compare opinions with others as we learn more about Apoe4 and all it's ramifications. My bias is that there is a huge amount of great information here, mixed with a huge amount of misinformation. And it's hard, maybe impossible, to make good decisions about which is which, for much of it, until we get more and better research results.

I suspect, even hope, that there will be thousands of people near Indianapolis who learn their ApoE status during the next five years. Some will be more comfortable with face-to-face interaction, I'm guessing. Time will tell.

By the way, thank you and all involved for starting and maintaining apoe4.info. It is super!

Dale

Hi Dale! Thank you for volunteering to take part in the Generation Study which we all hope will prove to be informative. We do have others who are also participating, who will hopefully reach out to you.

Amen! We don't preview or edit our member's posts, but rather allow everything that adheres to our Community Guidelines to be posted. For a synthesis of what generally reflects our current understanding, please see our Primer or Wiki. If you see "misinformation" in the Primer, please let us know.

My son is currently living in Indy, three hours from me. If you put a group together, I'd love to pop in. The primary goal for your meet-up is to reassure other members who may be feeling distressed? Very kind! :D

A warm welcome to our community DaleBru.

What a fantastic first post - offering to arrange a local meet-up and to be there to help others. Your generosity and kindness will be much appreciated by others. If you go with a Zoom meet-up then it really opens this meeting up to anyone and not just those in the Indy area. Make sure you keep us all updated as plans firm up.

It sounds like you've already taken the time to explore our site. Julie G has given you links to the Primer and Wiki. Input is always appreciated and making sure any information is correct and giving balanced views is so important. I hope to see you posting often and sharing your insights. Once again, welcome.

Hi Dale,

It is so great of you to reach out, and I would love to get together in person, along with others on this forum! You may notice that my moniker is "Indywoman". I do live in Indianapolis, transplanted through a number of career moves, and miles away from the mountainous Montana town of a thousand people where I grew up. It has been about a year since I joined this forum, and "drinking through a fire hose" doesn't even begin to describe this trek.

It would be great to meet you Julie, and personally thank you for all your path-breaking efforts in starting and maintaining this site, as well as your drive and determination to bring knowledge/research on Alzheimer's to the national level and beyond. Let's see who else responds to this meetup, and I would be happy to be your co-organizer, DaleBru.
4/4. Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Thank you, Indywoman. I greatly appreciate your thoughtful posts and would be delighted to meet as well! Let's try to make this happen.

I'll try to drive up from Louisville to participate, dependent on time, date, and general craziness! Please keep me posted.

Indy is about a 2 hour drive for me so I'd also be interested depending on details. I'll watch for more.....
