The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute was established in 1998 by a coalition of service providers, community-based organizations, educational institutions and advocates organized by the Wisconsin Bureau on Aging and Long-Term Care Resources and Bader Philanthropies. WAI received pioneering guidance and support under the leadership of our founding director Dr. Mark Sager. In 2008, the WAI Regional Milwaukee Office was established with the goals of empowering the local community, improving access to quality care, and increasing African American research participation by building culturally tailored programs.
