Product Description:

With more than five million Americans already suffering from the disease and a baby-boomer population steadily growing older, Alzheimer's looms as one of the greatest public health risks today. This essential program examines this frightening crisis, profiles families and doctors on the front lines, and scrutinizes the latest research.

Description by WGBH Boston Video:

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and ultimately fatal brain disorder that ravages a person's memory and identity, and can cripple the families left as caregivers. Today more than 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's, but those numbers are about to rise dramatically. As the Baby Boom generation grows older and more individuals than ever before enter the age of risk, a frightening public health crisis looms, threatening to bankrupt the American health system, economy, and spirit.
But has anyone noticed' In comparison to cancer, heart disease, and AIDS, Alzheimer's disease greatly lags in research funding, media attention, and celebrity support. Narrated by Edward Herrmann, Alzheimer's Disease: Facing the Facts examines the personal and societal implications of this discrepancy, profiling families living with Alzheimer's, interviewing the doctors on the front lines, and scrutinizing the latest research.
