Tennessee Memory Disorders


Our mission is to provide support for comprehensive community care for those with cognitive disorders and neurodegenerative dementias and to mentor students and professionals to become future leaders in dementia care.

Getting Involved


The Genesis Neuroscience Clinic in Knoxville, TN offers a year-round volunteer clinic experience unlike any others available in the area. Undergraduate students get to experience, first-hand, the course of neurodegenerative diseases, and assist the community’s leading healthcare providers in the diagnosis and treatment of such illnesses.
