Alzheimer's and other dementias are a growing public health issue, with over 50 million people currently diagnosed. June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month, and it serves as an opportunity to learn more about brain health, increase research opportunities, and early interventions.
If you have a brain, you are at risk of developing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, but there are other factors that put you at an even higher risk. The purpose of Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month is to embark on a path where you can learn what your risk factors are, and what you can do about them.
This awareness month also signifies a time to recognize caregivers and their essential support for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The June Summer solstice marks The Longest Day fundraiser that raises money for Alzheimer's research.
Simply put, how well you take care of your body now, determines how well your brain functions later. A healthy brain is key to a long and full life. It also helps you better communicate, problem solve, pay attention, and so much more. Although research is allowing us to learn more, there is strong evidence that you can reduce your risk of cognitive decline by making some simple lifestyle changes.
Alzheimer's is the only leading cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured, or even its progression slowed. That's why research studies and their participants are so vital. Clinical research studies help pave the way for early detection, management, and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's and other diseases.
