The State of Care: Disrupting Alzheimer's

September 12, 2018 8:00AM

The history of Alzheimer’s research has been filled with setback after setback – in fact nearly every clinical trial has failed – but it is also one marked by perseverance and renewed hope. Advancements in medical imaging have increased our understanding of how the disease strikes, and efforts are underway to develop diagnostics to treat the disease before its onset.

With a growing aging population, how will the disease burden the country’s health care system? The Atlantic will gather leading experts and key stakeholders for a national conversation on what it will take to disrupt Alzheimer’s disease.
