Atlanta Doctor Takes on the Alzheimer's Challenge

When The Goizueta Foundation funded a large research project at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at Emory University five years ago, a major transformation took place, according Emory neurologist and neuroscientist Allan Levey, director of the ADRC. He is also a faculty member in the NS program.

On the cover of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's "Aging in Atlanta", Levey stated that "Alzheimer's is now the most expensive disease in American, costing more than $277 billion a year." He further said that "140,000 Georgians are living with Alzheimer's....we predict this will be a 35.7 percenter increase to 190,000 by 2025."

Dr. Levey shares his latest wisdom on what's happening in this field.
