January Lunch Program
“Alzheimer’s Disease, from Cause to Cure”
Alzheimer’s Disease currently affects 5.3 million Americans and that number is predicted to grow quickly in the coming years. Of the top 10 leading causes of death, Alzheimer’s is the only one that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed. In 2015 President Obama presented an update to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease, making research, patient care, family support, public engagement, and data tracking key parts of the initiative. Please join us as we hear about some of the latest developments, challenges, and reasons for hope.
