Alzheimer's Article Requested for Use by the Alzheimer's Resource Center

Just a note for those who may be interested: The Alzheimer's Association Resource Center has requested permission to print my article, "Alzheimer's: Tips on Understanding the Disease and its Limitations," and distribute it as a handout at their educational meetings and support groups. The Alzheimer's Resource Center has also posted a link to my article on their website in their "Daily News."

I'm happy they found my article to be informative and helpful, and I'm thrilled that it may help families wordwide with loved ones stricken with Alzheimer's.
