Jamie Tyrone

CEO and Founder of Beating Alzheimer's By Embracing Science (B.A.B.E.S)

Jamie Tyrone has two copies of the ApoE4 gene, which puts her at a 91% lifetime risk of getting Alzheimer’s
disease, along with 2% percent of the U.S. population. A trained nurse and former marketing executive, she is now a full-time advocate for Alzheimer’s research. She is the founder of B.A.B.E.S., “Beating Alzheimer’s by Embracing Science,” a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s research. She is also a founding member of WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s (WA2), a movement of women – disproportionate victims of the disease as patients and caregivers – campaigning for a new approach to finding a cure and the adoption of a national plan for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. She has contributed recommendations to the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) Advisory Council, set up by the Department of Health and Human Services, on their National Plan to address the prevention, care, management and public awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.
