82% of Americans say they don’t know of condition that could lead to Alzheimer’s
Mild Cognitive Impairment can lead to pre-Alzheimer’s, but 82% of Americans surveyed said they’ve never heard of it. The finding is from the 2022 Alzheimer’s Association’s annual report.
“There are one in seven people ages 60 and older who have MCI, and it’s important to know about it, because in some cases, MCI can progress to dementia,” said Morgan Daven with the Alzheimer’s Association.
