Aging boomers, lack of funding for Alzheimer's may lead to 'major social and economic crisis'
by Allie Shah

That's why I say delaying onset and slowing progression is a more realistic goal than a cure." Petersen will participate in a panel discussion, hosted by TPT Tuesday, on the state of Alzheimer's disease in Minnesota. The event is sold out.
