According to Triumph Over Alzheimer’s Founder Leslie Ann Crozier,
The statistics are startling. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in America and is perhaps the costliest disease in medical history with an estimated tab of more than $1.1 trillion over the next several decades.
Triumph Over Alzheimer’s, a non-profit organization, was founded to raise funds that directly benefits the type of research that world-renowned doctors are conducting.
Plans are underway for the 2019 Triumph Over Alzheimer’s International Forum and Dinner on Tuesday, October 22, at the George W. Bush Institute at SMU. The evening will include cocktail reception, dinner and the forum.
In January of 2017, Harvard University’s Dr. Rudy Tanzi, in Forbes magazine, said, “Alzheimer’s will be the biggest epidemic in medical history. I’m shocked that people are not panicked about what this disease is going to do to the country.” Ten months later, in the same publication, Dr. Tanzi asserted that “curing Alzheimer’s is not a science issue, it’s now a funding issue.”
Among the preliminary list of speakers will be Dr. Tanzi and Dr. Roger Rosenberg, founding Director of the Alzheimer’s Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center and Dr. Michael Hayden from the University of British Columbia. Their topic will be “Alzheimer’s New Horizon” which will address breakthroughs and advancements in prevention and early detection.
Again, world-class researchers and generous donors will come together in Dallas to learn about the latest research findings and opportunities in a positive and informative setting. Please join us in this important effort to triumph over Alzheimer’s by visiting www.triumphoveralzheimers.org.
