Course Description: Over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease today. As these individuals begin to age, they will gradually lose their ability to remember, think, learn, and live independently, as there is currently no treatment to reverse the course of this progressive brain disorder. Since we do not yet know how to prevent this disease, as our population grows older, the future impact of this age-related disorder looms large over our nation. But there is hope on the horizon. With increased public attention and resources, the direction of this disease and related dementias can change.
