Marc Archambault, a Memory and Aging Program research participant who has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, is an inspiring force. Through his work with the Alzheimer’s Association of Rhode Island, speaking at seminars and meeting with lawmakers, he is working to increase awareness and conversation about the disease in Rhode Island. In July, 2019 he was featured by The Independent for his efforts. In the piece, Archambault talks about the need to temper people’s fear of the disease by spreading a greater understanding of it, and to replace feelings of despair with an outlook of hope and a commitment to action through research.
