Alzheimer's will be focus of new program series
By growing the conversation around the number of individuals affected by Alzheimer's, as well as the economic and societal impact , members of the public, as well as policymakers, can take appropriate actions to fight the disease. That's according to the Alzheimer's Association which, in conjunction with the Center for Creative Living in Lawton, will begin a six-month educational program designed to educate the public about Alzheimer's disease.
According to Lizzy Orf, Community Outreach Coordinator for the Alzheimer's Association, many people often mistake the warning signs of the disease as part of the normal aging process. These classes are designed to help people better understand and recognize the disease.
