According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6 million Americans, and their families, are living with Alzheimer's disease. In 2020, the estimated cost of caring for and treating people with Alzheimer’s disease - health care, long-term care, and hospice and more - was $305 billion. By 2050, these costs are projected to be more than $1.1 trillion. Supporting efforts to better detect, treat and prevent the onset of this costly chronic disease is an important step towards saving lives and health care dollars.
