Newport student sees research article on Alzheimer’s disease published
A SIXTH form student at Newport Free Grammar School has had a research paper on Alzheimer’s disease published by Medlink, an organisation for current and future medical students.
The article by Sophie Burnage is entitled ‘The Future Possibilities of a Change in Diet Leading to the Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease’.
The youngster wrote the article after attending a Medlink event. She was awarded a distinction for the paper and it was published.
Commenting on her successful publication, she said: “My ambition is to be a doctor and I know that research is at the heart of medicine.
“I enjoyed researching possible cures, treatment or diagnosis for Alzheimer’s disease and it highlighted to me how little people know about it, considering it affects so many people.
