Preventive Medicine Research Institute

Dean Ornish, M.D., and his colleagues at the 501(c)(3) non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute in collaboration with Harvard Medical School, the University of California, San Francisco and other leading academic institutions, have conducted a series of research studies scientifically proven in peer-reviewed randomized trials in leading peer-reviewed journals to prevent and often even reverse the progression of the most common and costly chronic diseases such as heart disease. This may include significantly improving cognition and function in many patients with early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
