Tenth Annual National Memory Screening Day Underscores Increased Focus on Alzheimer’s Disease

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Misperceptions about Alzheimer’s disease and other memory problems continue to lead many Americans to believe that memory loss, personality changes and other symptoms are a “normal part of aging.” That’s why the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is encouraging anyone with memory concerns and those interested in learning about brain health to take part in its 10(th) annual National Memory Screening Day (NMSD) on November 13.

About 2,500 community sites nationwide will be offering free, confidential memory screenings and educational materials about memory problems and successful aging on NMSD itself or another day in November. The event takes place during National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month.
