Interactive Guides: New Learning Materials for Your Journey

By | January 26th, 2024

A note from Being Patient editor-in-chief Deborah Kan

Although Being Patient is based in the U.S., our reporting — and the people contributing to the platform — know no borders! This week, I am writing from Hong Kong, where I’m meeting with several members of Being Patient’s learning team — some of whom come to us thanks to our partnership with the Chinese University of Hong Kong — to plot the way forward with our interactive learning platform.

Our U.S., Canada, UK, and Hong Kong-based team of science writers, editors, producers, graphic designers, and interns have been hard at work creating and launching these beautiful interactive guides to bring you better understanding of brain health, research and caregiving strategies. Our aim is to provide the latest science-backed information on what you may need to know, as your needs for information on prevention and treatment evolve — in bite-sized, easy-to-digest form.

This week, in addition to our new easier-to-navigate GUIDES landing page, where you can check out the guides we have so far, we launched a new prevention guide on brain health and exercise. And we have many more in the pipeline!

What topic would you like to see covered in a Being Patient guide? No matter where you are in the world, please drop me a line and let me know what topics would be most useful to you and your family. It takes a village, and this one just happens to be global.

If you find our articles and interviews helpful, please consider becoming a supporting member of our community. Frustrated by the lack of an editorially independent source of information on brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, we decided to create Being Patient. We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.

Please help support our mission.
