“People think it’s an old-age person’s disease. It’s like cancer was 25 years ago: You didn’t mention the C word. Cancer activists have done an excellent job of destigmatizing it, putting it out there, and making it a disorder that needs attention. Alzheimer’s is still behind the eight ball on that score.”

– Dr. Ronald Petersen
Director of the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center
