In the United States alone, more than 6 million individuals are living with Alzheimer's disease and 16 million are serving as their unpaid caregivers. The disease is a global crisis that impacts over 410,000 families statewide. However, no one has to face this disease alone or without information. This workshop will provide an overview of the basics of Alzheimer's disease, including a review of risk factors, symptoms, stages and treatments. We will explore how Alzheimer's has emerged as a public health issue and discuss strategies to intervene as well as helpful resources provided by the Alzheimer's Association.
Webinar Presented by:
Erica Salamida, Director of Community Outreach of seven Alzheimer's Association chapters in New York State, and Carianne Wilson, Director of Community Partnerships for the Alzheimer's Association, Central New York Chapter.
