Rex and Ruth Layton

C. Rex and Ruth H. Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center at Oregon Health & Science University was established in 1990 and is committed to serving the needs of people throughout the Northwest.

In 2004, OHSU announced a $1 million pledge from Rex and Ruth Layton to support the OHSU Alzheimer's Disease Center. In recognition of their generous gift, OHSU renamed the Center the Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center in honor of the Layton family.
