NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Sheila Harris-Schutz has been appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc., announced its CEO, Leslie C. Norins, MD, PhD. She will assist in one of the company’s aims—increasing motivation of researchers to study possible infectious triggers for Alzheimer’s disease. Recently she helped the firm create the concept of “boot camp” for Alzheimer’s researchers, wherein newer investigators can meet Alzheimer’s patients to better understand the mental declines produced by the disease.

Ms. Harris-Schutz has studied Alzheimer’s caregiving with Teepa Snow, a national expert, and is a certified practitioner and consultant in Ms. Snow’s method, Positive Approach to Care. She also has considerable personal experience as a caregiver, having aided two family members who died of Alzheimer’s. One was her sister and the other was her husband, Peter Schutz, who was the first American to head Porsche Motors International.

Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc. is a public benefit corporation headquartered in Naples Florida. Its mission is to accelerate and deepen scientific investigations into the possible role of infectious agents as the root cause of Alzheimer’s disease. It is the sponsor of the $1 Million Alzheimer’s Germ Quest Challenge Award for scientists. (ALZgerm.org).
