Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias: A Growing Public Health Challenge: Ways to Educate, Empower and Engage

June 23, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This webinar will be presented by Sara Murphy, VP Program and Services Greater PA Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and Melanie Smith, Director, Care and Support, Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month — an opportunity to hold a conversation about the brain and share the fact that Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are a major public health issue. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, the only leading cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.  The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s is growing — and growing fast.

The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. We work on a national and local level to provide care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research, the Association is committed to advancing vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention, and ultimately, a cure.

The Alzheimer’s Association will provide the latest findings from the 2021 Alzheimer’s Association Facts & Figures Report including current prevalence and impact on American families, risk factors, impact on caregivers, and the national cost of care. We will review why Alzheimer’s and other dementias are a growing public health challenge and updates on the latest research in modifiable risk factors and clinical trials.

Your learning objectives include:

  1. Identify the prevalence of Alzheimer’s & dementia and its impact on American families including risk factors, caregiver impact and cost of care
  2. Explain why Alzheimer’s and other dementias are a growing public health challenge and updates on the latest research
  3. Provide Alzheimer’s Association supportive resources for caregivers and families
