Geoffrey Beene was an influential fashion designer from New York. He initially studied Medicine for three years before changing to fashion design. When he passed away in 2004, Beene had left a significant legacy. In 2007 the Geoffrey Beene Foundation established the Geoffrey Beene Foundation Alzheimer’s Initiative.
The mission statement for the initiative can be found here. Themes such as big data analysis, mainstream digital tech applications, mobile brain behaviour monitoring and social media-based population databases emerge in the mission statement.
There are various initiatives including the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry that are supported by the charity.
