ABSTRACT
The article focuses on an address given by Larry Ruvo, senior director at Southern Nevada Wine and Spirits and founder of the Keep Memory Alive Foundation, during the business luncheon of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce on May 15, 2008 about the expected impact of the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute on the community of Las Vegas, Nevada. A facility was established which will house the institute to become the leading research center in the study of neurodegenerative diseases.
