    ore than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States. Already the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s is the only disease among the top 10 causes of death that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more potential treatments are in development than ever before.

    “Alzheimer’s is our most urgent public health crisis and it is the goal of the Alzheimer’s Association to lead the way to a world without Alzheimer’s disease,” said James Wessler, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire. “As the Alzheimer’s Association continues to raise funds towards critical research, we know that much needs to be done in the community to educate the public to erase the stigma of this disease and help people get an earlier diagnosis.”

    To continue their efforts to educate the public on the latest in Alzheimer’s research, the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire chapter is pleased to invite the public to attend their third annual AlzTalks program on Monday, April 3 at the Harrington Learning Center at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester.

    “A growing number of studies indicate that Alzheimer’s disease begins long before clinical symptoms appear,” said Wessler. “This is a must attend event for anyone who is concerned about Alzheimer’s or dementia.”
