Alzheimer’s Report Card: Where Are We?

Alzheimer’s disease grows increasingly more problematic as we age.  Alzheimer’s ravages individuals, families, communities, societies, and the world. Where are we in the fight against this insidious disease? It’s our season opening topic on the Graceful Aging Channel on YouTube.

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease costing our nation untold sums. The problem is spiraling to even more dangerous levels going forward says George Vrandenburg, the Chairman of US Against Alzheimer’s. He warns that without a cure or effective treatment we will soon face the difficult choice of national defense or Alzheimer’s care.

We sit down with two leading figures on Alzheimer’s to find out where in the world we are at this time. Dr. Howard Fillit, M.D. leads the Alzheimer’s Discovery Foundation in its search for effective treatments. George Vradenburg leads US Against Alzheimer’s, a national group determined to solve this Alzheimer’s issue by 2020.  Both men are involved as key players in our nation’s efforts against this costly illness.


In this highly informative show, you will learn where and how science is looking for solutions; the triggers and possible preventions of Alzheimer’s; our national and international efforts against this growing menace; and how you can mobilize you and your family for a healthier tomorrow.
