Alzheimer’s disease is a leading cause of death in the United States. And as the population continues to age, its incidence is likely to rise. The toll it could take on our society, our health care system, and on each of us is immeasurable.
How are patients, care partners, researchers, and policymakers grappling with the disease? And how are these experiences shaping the future of Alzheimer’s care? What does the future hold for research into a cure?
The Atlantic will discuss the science, the care, and the personal stories behind this
Due to current concerns about coronavirus in the local community, The Atlantic will not convene next week’s Confronting Alzhiemer's event, underwritten by Alzheimer's Association, on Tuesday, March 17, as previously scheduled. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, speakers and partners, we feel this is the best course.
