Join Greg Woods from the Department of Health and Human services as he shares this program about Alzheimer’s, dementia and public health. 

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, and its prevalence is growing.  More than five million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s, but that number is expected to triple by 2050.  This program’s topics include: the growing focus of Alzheimer’s and dementia in public health; what causes memory loss; what can be done to decrease one’s risk; updates on the latest research; existing resources; and what Iowa HHS is doing to help.
