Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month

June has been designated as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.  Alzheimer’s and related dementias affect over 47 million people worldwide.  The disease has been found to be linked to genetics so if you have a family history of Alzheimer’s, it is smart to be aware of the disease and how it could affect you or your loved ones.  Colorado issued a state Alzheimer’s disease plan in 2010, which you can find in our library.  Our collection also includes several quick, easy-to-understand resources on Alzeheimer’s from Colorado State University, such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia from their Family and Youth Institute and Alzheimer’s Disease from the University Cooperative Extension.
