Smith Alzheimer's Center
SIU Medicine is home to the Dale and Deborah Smith Center for Alzheimer's Research and Treatment. The Smith Alzheimer's Center not only provides personalized care for those with dementia as well as their caregiver(s), the Center also provides numerous community outreach programs to help improve quality of life as well. The third component of the Center is finding better treatments, whether in the research lab or through clinical trials. All three components are critical to advancing care not only for the patient, but for their families and the community.
