Abstract

More than 5 million people have Alzheimer’s disease today and 450,000 people in the US die of Alzheimer’s every year. By 2050 the number of people living with Alzheimer’s could triple. 40% of patients living with Alzheimer's disease are undiagnosed. Early detection promotes better dementia care, lowers costs of care, and increases quality of life
