Alzheimer's Awareness Matters

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

Today is World Alzheimer's Day. It is a designation aimed at raising awareness about a major threat to the health of the worldwide population and to the economies of our nations.

Last fall, during National Alzheimer's Awareness Month, I wrote an article titled: Alzheimer's Awareness: Why Bother? The article makes the case for how awareness translates into real world gains in our ability to identify, diagnose and treat this complex disease. To my surprise and delight, the article was read about 80,000 times in the 24 hours after I posted it.

I am linking back to that post today in the hope of spreading the educational message a little more broadly on this important day.
