Description: The 2010 United States Census references that 4.7 million Americans had Alzheimers Disease by 2010. Our baby boomers are aging and by the year 2060 it is estimated that 13.8 million people in the U.S. will have AD or a similar aspect of Dementia.
This free information session will showcase digital resources from the National Institute of Health and National Library of Medicine. We will discuss the signs of dementia, review some of the causes, discuss diagnosis and discover ways to reduce memory impairment through prevention.
