Second Opinion with Joan Lunden - Alzheimer's: A Public Health Crisis

Alzheimer's Disease is an under-recognized public health crisis. And while the word Alzheimer's strikes fear in aging Americans more than any other word, globally the number of people diagnosed is expected to double every 20 years. Not only does Alzheimer's come with a tremendous cost to our healthcare system, it takes an emotional toll on families as they care for their loved ones, while watching them slip away. This episode discusses Alzheimer's Disease from a caregiver and a public health perspective.
