More than 5,900 of the brightest minds in dementia research from around the world met in Los Angeles for the AAIC 2019 to discuss the latest scientific advancements and theories. Research from AAIC suggests that combining several healthy lifestyle factors may help reduce the chance of developing dementia, even in people with high genetic risk. Learn more.

Alzheimer's can take a financial toll on the person living with the disease and their family. Putting plans in place early can help to secure your financial future. Since Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, you'll need to consider all the costs you might face now and in the future. Learn more.

Significant advances in the global search for blood test technologies for Alzheimer's and other dementias were reported at AAIC. Currently, brain changes that occur before Alzheimer's symptoms appear can only be reliably assessed by brain scans and spinal fluid tests. The Alzheimer's Association strongly supports efforts to discover more readily accessible tools for early detection and diagnosis. Learn more.
