People concerned about Alzheimer’s disease and its effect on families, on the health care system, on the country as a whole, have lobbied for years for a national action plan. How should the nation confront a disease projected to afflict more than 13 million Americans by 2050 — a disease gaining on cancer as the illness Americans dread most?... Now the committee exists. Led by the Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Ronald Petersen, it will convene for its first quarterly meeting inWashington on Tuesday morning. You are cordially invited.
