So, I was on vacation last week so this will be a week of catch up. I missed commenting on the World Alzheimer’s Day which was Sept 21st. The Alzheimer’s organization released a new report letting us all know that over 35 million people worldwide are living with dementia with a projection of 115 million by 2050. They also outline the costs associated with this growing epidemic– $315 billion annually. Here is a link to the report. The release also came with a call to action to write congress and let them know that this should be a national priority through the Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act which will increase NIH funding by $2B and create a National Summit on Alzheimer’s. All of us at Marbles are touched by individuals and their caretakers suffering from this disease and thank those who are doing this very important research.
