While we would all love nothing more than for a cure to be found tomorrow, we should realize that ALZ research really has come a long way in recent years. An informative article from A Place For Mom discusses some of the newest techniques being used for early detection. From brain imaging and genetic markers to examining proteins in blood and cerebrospinal fluid, researchers are making progress every single day.

These advances underscore the importance of supporting organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association as they work to increase awareness and raise research dollars. Another critical part of the equation, of course, is reaching out to your legislators to stress the urgency of this issue.
