She is the granddaughter of Marvin and Maxine Heinrichs of Fulda....and she has gained world-wide recognition for her research in a study that holds out a possible promise for an effective treatment for early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Paige Cramer, Pensacola, Florida is one of 15 grandchildren of whom the Heinrichs’ are very proud of.

She had the honor of having been named to Forbes magazine’s December 2012 “30 Under 30” list of the nation’s top young professionals in the health and science field. She is currently employed with the pharmaceutical company, Merck, as a research scientist.

“We always told our children that we were not going to leave them much of an inheritance, but we were going to give them the tools to help them receive good educations. We told them that there were all kinds of educations, but the one we would not accept is that of educated bum,” Maxine said, as she recalled conversations from the past with the couple’s seven children. “They passed that on to their children, too. Good educations are very important to our family.”

“We are very interested in the research that Paige has been doing. It would be so wonderful to find help for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s,” Marv stated. “We do not know one family who has not been affected by the disease.”

Because of her grandparent’s great interest, Paige makes sure that she lets them know what is happening with the progressing Alzheimer’s research.
