There are over 5.7 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer's disease, and this number is expected to triple by 2050. Although there is not yet a cure for this disease, researchers are making strides to better understand the brain changes associated with dementia, determine how to detect and diagnose the disease as early as possible, identify risk factors, and ultimately find disease-modifying treatments and prevention strategies. Join us for this AlzTalks on the latest in Alzheimer's research and the progress being made to treat this disease.
