We are leading a new, major research study, in partnership with the American College of Radiology, that will enable 18,000+ Medicare beneficiaries to receive coverage for a brain amyloid PET scan. This scan can help doctors clarify the cause of decline in memory/thinking in cases that are difficult to diagnose.
Learn about current Alzheimer's treatments, including FDA-approved medications and treatments on the horizon

Debra: We are, I am now convinced... a huge network of kinfolk. Equal opportunity, too. My neighbor, a dear Hispanic gal and widow is now looking after her elder-beloved who, in addition to ongoing Alz dementia, has just lost 90% of her vision from a related stroke. Another colleague is from India, and they are home caring their dad. Though our cultures and ethnicities may be varied, our love for our family member is universal, and across the board we face each challenge, in our faith. Also, I hope making time for a bit of laughter. All, stay strong.
