ALZgerm.org & Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc.
ALZgerm.org is a privately-owned platform on which Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc (the “Sponsor”) launches, manages and tracks performance of its Challenge Award Competition, and related matters.
On this website, the Sponsor may at times provide general information, proven or unproven, about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, or other diseases. This information cannot and does not take the place of professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment; please consult a licensed physician for any individual case or question. Two websites for excellent information about many facets of Alzheimer’s disease are the Alzheimer’s Association and the National Institute of Aging (a unit of the National Institutes of Health).
Purpose & Overview

Within the ALZgerm.org site the Sponsor is posting rules, terms and conditions for the Challenge Award.
