Study Summary

The mission of corrections is to provide care, custody, and control for incarcerated individuals. United States prisons are required by law to provide adequate care for growing numbers of older people who are incarcerated-a group who are disproportionately at risk for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). This Phase I project focuses on research and development of highly interactive computer-based learning modules, for prison staff and people who are incarcerated and serving as peer caregivers, to promote an integrated systems approach for enhancing the care of people with ADRD in prison.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
