Alzheimer's testing: Can you help?
Esmé E. Deprez, a reporter at Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek magazine, is working on a story about the rise of online Alzheimer's tests and how misleading they can be. (They ask questions that anyone of any age would fail, such as: have you misplaced your keys in the past week? The person answers yes, it tells them they have Alzheimer's and then may try to sell them something or at the very least propel them to their doctor's office in a panic.)
She's looking to find and talk to actual patients who have taken one of these online tests. Do you have any patients that have done so and might be willing to talk to her? If so, you and/or the patient(s) can contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 617-1739. The idea is to raise awareness that there are inaccurate tests like this out there, so as to spare people the potential grief of being duped.
