November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading, global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care and support, and the largest
private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer research.
President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month in 1983. At the time, fewer than 2 million
Americans had Alzheimer’s; today, the number of people with the disease has soared to nearly 5.4 million. Get involved this month, and
help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
