Did you know that if one of your parents suffered from Alzheimer’s, your own chance of developing it increases by 50% or more? Worrisome? Yes! But new research is exploring ways to intervene early enough in the disease to prevent its devastating symptoms and its impact on our aging society.
- Understand – Differentiate between "normal aging" of the mind and the signs of dementia (most often Alzheimer's)
- Prevent – Identify factors that increase your risk of dementia and those that protect the aging brain
- Help – Discuss recent research in this area and in the search for treatments that can promote brain health or prevent cognitive decline
