The pioneering documentary series shines a spotlight on the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families, and takes a close look at the groundbreaking discoveries made by the country’s leading scientist as they work towards a cure.
Segments include: The Memory Loss Tapes; Grandpa, Do you know who I am? (with Maria Shriver); Momentum in Science; and Caregivers. Topics will cover various stages of the disease process and participants are encouraged to engage in small group and open discussion.
