disease (AD) afflicts over 4 million Americans and this number will
grow as our population continues to age. Although AD cannot be cured
as yet, it can be diagnosed accurately and drugs are now available
to treat the primary symptoms. It has been estimated that as many
as half of all persons with AD in the US today have yet to be evaluated
and diagnosed. This video was developed to raise public awareness
about the signs of early AD to encourage timely diagnosis and treatment
of this devastating illness.
