Free Online Conference Highlights Alzheimer's Disease Resources

Alzheimer's Disease is a kind of dementia that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. There's currently no cure, and symptoms eventually become severe enough to interfere with daily life.

Statistics show that more than 55,000 people in Kansas are living with Alzheimer's. And if you add in the number of family members and caregivers, that means more than 200,000 Kansans are in some way affected. That's why the Alzheimer's Foundation of America is offering a free, Kansas-specific, online conference tomorrow (TUE), to help Kansans access information and resources for people living with the disease. 

KPR's Laura Lorson spoke with Chris Schneider, the foundation's director of communications, about what to expect from the seminars and lectures.
