Alzheimer’s Community Education on Research
The Alzheimer's Association is offering free community education on research and the hope for effective treatments for anyone with an interest in caring for people with Alzheimer's and related diseases at Mercy Medical Center, 250 Mercy Drive, 1st Floor Cafeteria Conference Room, on Friday, December 9th, 3:00-4:30 pm.
Alzheimer's Association, Greater Iowa Chapter, Senior Program Specialist Jerry Schroeder will present a historical tour of the research done since Dr. Alzheimer first had the memory robbing disease named after him in the early 20th Century and will explore the optimism for effective treatments soon.
According to Mr. Schroeder, "There are dozens of research projects going on all over the world and many of the studies are very promising. While it is true that we continue to be stymied in our search for effective treatments, we are very confident that soon we will be able to manage this brain crippling illness. This is a time for great hope and we are eager to share this good news with those impacted."
