In a year where Good Friday and Passover fall on the same day, we want to take a moment to pause and reflect on the many lives affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Our first article touches on how many people are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia in 195 countries around the globe.  Find out which countries have the highest and least prevalence of the disease.  Keep in mind that while we may not have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease yet, we do have data to help educate ourselves on what we can do now to take better care of minds and bodies and keep them healthy.

Our second article reveals how widely used office dementia tests are often inaccurate in determining who might be in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Remember, always follow-up with your doctor anytime you have questions or concerns about your memory or overall health. To learn more about the above-mentioned research, please read these expert-reviewed articles below and for more information about Alzheimer’s; please visit our website at www.alzinfo.org.

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the research progress being made at the Fisher Center.

Together we can end Alzheimer’s.
