World Alzheimer's Day

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

It's today, September 21, World Alzheimer's Day.

It is a day for global recognition of the major threat we face from this terrible disease. As such, here is a short summary of the five most important and consistent messages that constitute the news and are regularly addressed in this blog.
  1. Early detection of Alzheimer's disease yields best treatment results.
  2. Currently approved medications are more beneficial than many headlines suggest.
  3. Although we have made tremendous strides in understanding this disease, it is still poorly understood.
  4. Several promising new drugs have clinical trials currently underway.
  5. Knowing and managing your risks for Dementia can help you age with cognitive vitality.
We hope that some of you have found benefits in the words and perspectives we offer here. If so, we encourage you to share them with your online social networks. We look forward to ongoing contributions to the global effort to beat Alzheimer's disease.
