Alzheimer's Foundation Reflects On 20 Years Of Research

More than 35 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease, making it the most common form of dementia and the fifth leading cause of death. With November marking Alzheimer’s Awareness month, one foundation is working to raise awareness and more funds toward research as they race to provide better treatment and ultimately find a cure for the neurodegenerative disease.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation has for the past 20 years worked to educate patients, caregivers and fellow researchers on the disease, which affects 5.3 million Americans.
