To the Editors:
While Alzheimer’s disease has been traditionally seen as an aging issue, it has evolved into a public health issue. More than five million people are living with Alzheimer’s, two-thirds of whom are women. The number of people with the disease is projected to triple to as many as 16 million by 2050. The annual costs are approximately $259 billion for 2017, and are expected to rise to more than $1 trillion by 2050.
