MCI911.com, an informational website devoted to helping patients cope with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is launching “MCI Helper”, a supplementary monthly e-newsletter, says Leslie Norins, MD, PhD, CEO. It will provide succinct actionable information to those coping with MCI—which is often the condition which precedes the onset of more serious cognitive deficits, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
The new newsletter will primarily be distributed on request via Facebook and LinkedIn, but is also available via free signup It will also be sent without charge to the thousands already signed up to receive communications from MCI911.com. Much of the content will be derived from news and advice on the parent website.
To cover all pertinent new topics, there are strict limits on the lengths of synopsized articles. Readers desiring more information can consult the original articles on MCI911.com.
Dr. Norins says, “We have had many requests for condensed ‘nuggets’ of the helpful information we provide. We understand that some of our followers have busy schedules and need summaries.”
He adds, “Let’s remember there is no magic bullet or single drug yet to cure MCI. Therefore, the activist patient and family can assemble their personalized menu from the many items and tactics we gather from medical journals to possibly help. Of course, always check with your own doctor first.”
