Memory screening is recommended annually for persons aged 65 years or older. Screening results are not a diagnosis, and individuals with below-normal scores or who have concerns are encouraged to pursue a full medical exam.

The Memory Research Suite features a reception area, patient exam room, two testing rooms, an Americans with Disability Act compliant restroom, a phlebotomy area for blood draws as well as central air conditioning and wireless Internet access. The 400-square-foot research space will be staffed by clinical experts from the Byrd Institute who will evaluate study participants and administer investigational medications at pre-selected study sites.
