Alzheimer's 101: Past, Present, and Future

Later on, the world made a vow to fight Alzheimer's disease together

In 2010, Alzheimer’s receives the dubious distinction of being the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. This leads to President Barack Obama to sign the National Alzheimer’s Project Act in 2011, in order to provide a national agenda for support and funding in Alzheimer’s research.

Alzheimer's disease doesn't just exist in the United States. In 2013, the G8 Dementia Summit in the UK starts a global effort to fight against Alzheimer's disease and discover a cure by the year 2025.

Alzheimer’s research still has a long way to go. In 2017, it was declared the third highest cause of death in the aging population, and as the population ages, more people will need dementia care and help.
