New Developments in Research, Care, Support & Prevention

By 2050 more than 28 million baby boomers are expected to develop dementia -- the only leading cause of death among the top 10 in the U.S. that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. Still, there are reasons to be optimistic. There’s unprecedented momentum in Alzheimer’s research, and innovations in care are enabling more people to live their best possible life with the disease. In this webinar, Alzheimer’s Association leaders share how scientists are making progress toward the national goal of treating and preventing Alzheimer’s disease by 2025 – and how health care professionals and others are becoming better equipped to diagnose and support those living with the disease and those who care for them. Presenters: Heather M. Snyder, Ph.D., Senior Director, Medical & Scientific Relations, Alzheimer's Association; Joanne Pike, DrPH, Chief Program Officer, Alzheimer's Association. Moderator: John Feather Ph.D., CEO, Grantmakers in Aging. Sponsored by Bader Philanthropies and The John A. Hartford Foundation. Webinar date: November 20, 2017. View the recording below or on the GIA YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/Pkra0AbwJKw.
