Joann Geer

 Collaborator Award

Joann is a study partner for her husband, Chuck, and entirely dedicated to the furthering of Alzheimer’s disease research. Both Joann and Chuck know the importance of research: Joann is a retired nurse and Chuck has a family history of the disease. She does whatever she can to make sure Chuck makes all his appointments, gives details about his health to the team at K2, engaged in the process, stay up to date on research, and are enjoyable to be around. Joann is more than willing, some would say eager, to share their experience and to encourage others to get involved.
