Alzheimer's disease (AD) represents a significant unmet medical need and a growing global health challenge.
Identify (ID) Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an initiative to inform the public about Alzheimer's disease. It includes content on the importance of a timely diagnosis, recognition of early signs and symptoms, brain health practices, and available support for AD patients and care partners.
Identifying the early signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease is key to better patient outcomes.
A healthy diet, regular exercise, social interactions and mental stimulation may help preserve brain health and cognitive functions.
With so many more people living longer than ever before, policy leadership and commitment is needed to increase the number of people spending their later years in good health and well-being.
