LOS ANGELES (Nov. 20, 2014) — Seeking to stem the rapid increase of Alzheimer’s disease, Cedars-Sinai has launched a new Alzheimer’s Prevention Program to help identify patients at risk of developing the neurological disorder and to reduce the impact on those diagnosed with the slow-moving condition. The program represents a concerted effort by clinicians, researchers, patients, families, caregivers and community agencies to address an approaching “tsunami” of Alzheimer’s care. Medical authorities expect the number of cases nationally to triple by 2050, inundating the healthcare system with patients and costing more than $1 trillion.
