Jeff Borghoff

Patient Leader

In March of 2016 at the age of 51 I was diagnosed with Younger Onset / Early-Stage Alzheimer’s Disease. You can read my full story here. Since my diagnosis I have been working with great fervor with the National Alzheimer’s Association as a member of the National Early-Stage Advisory Group and a Early-Stage Ambassador with the Delaware Valley & Greater NJ Early-Stage Advisory Councils and an Alzheimer’s Congressional Team member. The Alzheimer’s Association has a vision of “A world without Alzheimer’s®” and a mission to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
