Post-traumatic stress disorder linked to cognitive impairment in 9/11 responders
A new study published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment & Disease Monitoring of World Trade Center responders reports that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be associated with cognitive impairment, a link previously observed in veterans. Researchers examined the connection between PTSD and cognitive impairment among 800 responders who helped with search, rescue and cleanup efforts following the 2001 World Trade Center attacks. Nearly 13 percent of study participants had scores indicative of cognitive impairment, while 1.2 percent had scores suggesting possible dementia.

Even a little exercise may help decrease the risk of developing dementia

You can fight back against Alzheimer's.
  Donate to the 2016 Annual Fund to fight Alzheimer's.

Help advance the latest research and improve the lives of those living with Alzheimer's today.

Dear Tushar,
Alzheimer's disease is an epidemic, and every one of us is at risk.

One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer's disease. But Alzheimer's isn't just a disease of older people. Those under 65 are at risk too, with the disease striking men and women in the prime of their lives. And Alzheimer's is the only cause of death among the top 10 in the U.S. that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed.

That's why your gift to the Alzheimer's Association 2016 Annual Fund is more important than ever before.

When you give today, your donation will help us fight back against a disease that kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined. You'll help advance the most innovative research and provide care and support services for those facing Alzheimer's now and in the future.

The time to act is now. Please give generously to our 2016 Annual Fund today. Together, we can move closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.

Thank you,

Donna McCullough
Chief Development Officer
