Michael Ellenbogen

Michael Ellenbogen was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2008 at the age of 49. Prior to his diagnosis, he was a network operations manager for a fortune 500 financial institution. His book "From the Corner Office to Alzheimer's" was published in 2013. He’s the founder of the Michael Ellenbogen Movement, http://www.michaelellenbogenmovement.com/. Since his diagnosis, he’s become an advocate for education about Alzheimer’s disease, and for increasing funding for research to find effective treatments. He’s interested in motivating people with Alzheimer’s to raise their voice and reduce the stigma surrounding the disease. He believes that his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease is not the end for him, because he has so much more to give to the world.
