Turning Point: Documentary Screening + Conversation

September 17, 2018 6:00PM

An estimated 5.7 million people in this country have Alzheimer’s. And the search for a treatment or a cure has not been promising. Trial after clinical trial has failed. In the documentary, Turning Point, filmmaker James Keach, follows a team of scientists on the front lines of Alzheimer’s research and captures the disappointment and renewed hope of those working to disrupt the disease.

Join the Atlantic for a film screening in Washington D.C. for a conversation with leading experts about what it will take to advance the fight against Alzheimer’s.
