The Case For Alzheimer's Research

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

The case for funding Alzheimer's research, and for participating in such research,  is a compelling one.

You've all heard or read the numbers: more than 5 million Americans diagnosed, probably at least that many in early stages and not yest diagnosed, with all numbers approximately tripling by 2050.  Neither our health care system nor our society can absorb the looming impact of this epidemic.

In this excellent opinion piece posted at CNN, Dr. Ronald Petersen of the Mayo Clinic describes an approach to averting a national, disease-driven crisis.  I encourage you to click through and read it.
