In recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, AMPHS will be screening for risk factors for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. You don’t have to be 65 years of age or older to get screened!  Risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, Type-2 diabetes, genetics, and other risk factors may contribute to Alzheimer’s Disease or early-onset Alzheimer’s.  Because early-onset Alzheimer’s can happen before 65 years of age, we encourage community members as young as 21 years of age to screened, especially if the disease runs in the family.
