Due to the concerns over the transmission and containment of
COVID-19, especially amongst elderly individuals, the University of
Colorado (CU) Alzheimer's and Cognition Center has made the following adjustments:
As of March 16, the University of Colorado Memory Disorders Clinic
has suspended all in-person clinic visits due to the risk of COVID-19.
Our clinic staff is in the process of reaching out to all people with clinic
visits scheduled between March 16 and April 30 to discuss appointment
options. Our staff remains available for our current patients via our
answering service (720-848-2080) or through MyHealth Connection.
As of March 16, all research visits were suspended for the studies run through the CU Alzheimer's and Cognition Center. Our research staff is in the process of reaching out to all participants of research studies that are affected by this suspension in the next few weeks to reschedule for later in the year, with the knowledge that changes will be ongoing and that schedules will need to be flexible. We are developing strategies for reopening recruitment of new participants once it is safe to resume operations on our campus. If you have any questions, please contact the CU Alzheimer's and Cognition Center at 303-724-7670 or CUAlz@cuanschutz.edu.
your understanding and patience as we continue to adapt to this rapidly
evolving situation. As always, our patients' and our research participants' safety is of the utmost importance to us, and we will always put that first. In the coming weeks and months, we will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and will update our research studies and clinical practices accordingly. We look forward to resuming normal operating procedures as soon as possible. In the meantime, please follow the CDC guidelines and stay safe.
