Show #45: Alzheimer’s Association

Show #45: Alzheimer’s Association

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.  With 5.4 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s and related disorders, and the population ageing,  this is a disease that will only become more prevalent unless we keep supporting the great research into how to fight the disease.  This week Radio 4 the Ages was proud to welcome guests Teresa Hoover (V.P. of Programs for Alzheimer’s Association) and Becca Carpenter (V.P. of Development for Alzheimer’s Association), both of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Western Carolina Chapter.  We also had a great phone call from Lori Walker (CEO and President of the Alzheimer’s Association Western Carolina Chapter).  To learn more about the hard work they are doing, how to contact the Alzheimer’s Association, or would like to help, tune in!
