From Healthy People 2020:
“Older adults are at high risk for developing chronic illnesses and related disabilities. These include diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia. This webinar will explore optimal aging for older adults, with a focus on daily function and quality of life, including living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Dementia is the loss of cognitive function—the ability to think, learn, and remember—to such an extent that people can no longer live independently. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.
Please join us on June 19 at 12:30 p.m. ET for a Healthy People 2020 Progress Review featuring the Older Adults and Dementias, Including Alzheimer’s Disease topic areas. Progress Review webinars are focused on tracking and measuring the progress of select Healthy People 2020 objectives.”
