HBS Reunion Panel on Alzheimer's

Henry McCance and Jeff Morby, co-chairmen and co-founders of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund and Harvard Business School (HBS) alumni, had their respective 50th and 55th reunions in June.

Morby made a presentation to 100 attendees of his reunion about the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease and the major research initiatives that have been funded by Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.

Later that day McCance was part of a panel discussion titled “The Urgency and The Hope,” given to all the alumni classes to underscore the critical importance of Alzheimer’s research. More than 200 people gathered to ask questions of the panel, which included Rudy Tanzi, Ph.D., chair, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Research Consortium; celebrity chef, model and early-onset Alzheimer’s patient B. Smith and her husband, Dan Gasby; William Sahlman, HBS professor of business administration; and David Shenk, author of The Forgetting.
