Curiosity, Dialogue, and Knowledge
Dementia is one of the most devastating category of diseases that exist. The number of people who are afflicted with this every year is rising in incidence both in relation to population growth and increased longevity. Costs for caring for this population will also increase in lock- step as the overall number of people with dementia grows. Despite all of this, we know only relatively little about this class of diseases. The following slide show was completed back in 2007 by myself, with assistance from Cindy Woodson, and Suzanne Sprague, and with the oversight of Dr. Kim McCullough. I presented this slide show to the Arkansas Speech and Hearing Association in Hot Springs, Arkansas. There are no notes for the slides, and for that I apologize. But, overall I think there is a lot of good information to take away from the presentation. Please, take a look at the presentation linked below.
