As a service to its members, Capitolbeat is offering a series of webinars to its members. The next one is coming up March 24, 2010 and will focus on Alzheimer’s Disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures annual report illustrates the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias on individuals, families, all levels of government, the health care system and the economy.

The 2010 report features state by state data on prevalence, cost and caregiver impact organized into individual charts and visuals for easy to understand reference.

Also in this year’s report is a specific focus on the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on diverse communities. During Wednesday’s briefings, the Alzheimer’s Association policy staff will:

  • Share with you information from the 2010 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures.
  • Discuss how the potential epidemic of Alzheimer’s will impact the economy as well as Medicare, Medicaid, and the retirement security of the baby boomer generation.
  • Bring you up-to-date on the latest state based information about Alzheimer’s disease and your state government’s response.
  • Answer your questions about Alzheimer’s disease.

Following each briefing, the Alzheimer’s Association will also provide graphics, contact information for local spokespersons in your state.
