Nihal Satyadev is a social entrepreneur, biomedical researcher, and a leading millennial Alzheimer's advocate.

In 2015, Nihal recognized that Alzheimer's disease will bankrupt medicaid and medicare within two decades. Noticing a lack of youth advocacy on this issue, he founded The Youth Movement Against Alzheimer’s (YMAA) - 501(c)3. In the 3 years of his involvement as CEO, YMAA has become the nation's widest-reaching nonprofit in providing opportunities for college and high school students to advocate, research, and provide care for those battling with the disease. YMAA has expanded to 12 high schools and colleges, provided over 3500 hours of caregiver respite, and raised $10,000 for research scholarships. More recently, he has begun spearheading a statewide campaign in California to start the first-ever "AmeriCorps for caregiving" program to help expand respite care access for family caregivers. In 2017, Nihal awarded as the youngest Under 40 Senior Living Leader at the age of 22.

In addition to his work with this nonprofit, Nihal has been an avid researcher of neurodegenerative diseases. He is currently working on assessing a correlation between Alzheimer’s Disease and Periodontal Disease. He graduated in 2018 with a Bachelors in Computer Science degree at the University of Redlands and is currently pursuing a Masters in Public Health from George Washington University.

"no matter who you are, what you've accomplished, what your financial situation is - when you're dealing with a parent with alzheimer's, you yourself feel helpless. the parent can't work, can't live alone, and is totally dependent, like a toddler. as the disease unfolds, you don't know what to expect." -- maria shriver
