Rainwater Foundation’s Fight for Dementia Cures

My friend, Todd Rainwater, recently appeared on CNBC to talk about his and his father’s foundation, the Rainwater Foundation, and the work they are doing to help find cures for dementia-related illness.

Todd’s father, Richard, suffers from a rare neurological disorder (explained in the clip), which spurred the family’s interest in not only helping him, but hopefully in finding cures for other illnesses such as Parkinson’s, Dementia and Alzheimer’s as well.

Please take a quick look to learn more about what they’re doing. You can learn more about the Rainwater Charitable Foundation by clicking the link here. They do a lot with children as well, among other good work.

    I am working on a document to show the connection of the nature of early learning experiences to how the brain develops sensory pathways which HOLD the meaning
    of experiences for use in later life to transfer through sensory connections to
    the meanings of experienes that would otherwise not be accessible.

    THE IDEA IS THAT STATE TESTING FOR RIGHT ANSWERS BASED ON THE
    HANDOUTS WE ARE GIVEN AT TEA CURRICULUM MEETINGS MAY RAISE TEST
    SCORES BUT DO NOTHING TO STRENGTHEN HOW THE BRAIN ACCESSES
    INFORMATON LATER IN LIFE.
