I am participating in the Alzhiemer’s walk with my Health and Aging class at Ithaca College. During this class we have discussed a variety of common health conditions with aging. Alzhimer's disease is one that stood out to me and I am excited to participate in the walk to spread awareness about this disease.
I plan to pursue a career as a PA, and it is crucial that I am aware about cognitive conditions as we age. While there is no one way to prevent Alzhiemer's disease, research has found that a healthy lifestyle of staying physically and mentally active can change disease progression. By doing this walk and spreading awareness around the disease we can contribute to the process of ending Alzhiemers.
Any and all action is powerful.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
