What is Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer's disease is among the only top 10 causes of death in America that can't be prevented, cured or even slowed. Ultimately it is terminal.

 

It is the 6th leading cause of death in America but the 5th leading cause of death for women in New Jersey. In the low-income, Hispanic and urban communities, Alzheimer's disease will increase over 600% by the year 2050.

 

Without a doubt, the Alzheimer's disease crisis is upon us. Act Now Foundation is aiming to level the playing field for under-served populations of urban and suburban communities within New Jersey.
