Dear Tushar,
The holiday season is one of the most hopeful times of the year — it's full of possibility, and it seems as if all of our dreams can come true.
 
Here at the Alzheimer's Association, we're wishing — and working — every day for advances to end Alzheimer's disease. And we're making progress, thanks in part to our $250,000 matching gift challenge. Longtime supporters and​ ​Alzheimer's Association Zenith Society members Dick and Marianne Kipper have generously agreed to donate $250,000 to advance ​Alzheimer's ​research initiatives if we can raise that amount by December 15.
 
We've almost reached our goal — but time is running out. Please make your donation now: Your gift supports our mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
 
I deeply appreciate your generosity today.
 
Gratefully,

Donna McCullough
Chief Development Officer

Hearing loss may raise the odds of developing dementia
In a new study, researchers reviewed data from 36 studies including more than 20,000 people worldwide and found an association between age-related hearing loss and increased risk for mental impairment and dementia. The researchers stressed that this is not proof of a cause-and-effect relationship between hearing loss and cognitive decline, and they saw no relationship between hearing loss and Alzheimer's disease. Research results reported at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference® 2017 also provided clues about associations between cognitive status and hearing in older people.
