Alzheimer’s As Public Health Issue

PBS is airing a program entitled EVERY MINUTE COUNTS about the importance (is that the right word…danger? risk? cost?) of Alzheimer’s as a public health issue. It will be telecast this coming Wednesday, January 25, 2017, at 10 pm.

I have not seen the show, only the promotional material, but being someone who tends to view Alzheimer’s and degenerative cognitive disease through the narrow lens of my personal experience as the spouse of someone on the Alzheimer’s spectrum, I look forward having the chance (is that the right phrasing… will force myselffeel a responsibility?)  to examine the larger social and economic effects.

For those of you with access to American television:

EVERY MINUTE COUNTS   10 pm  Wednesday, January 25, 2017   your local PBS station.
