September 2014 is the third global World Alzheimer’s Month™. This is an international awareness raising campaign coordinated by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI).
“The theme for World Alzheimers Month 2014 is ‘Dementia: Can we reduce the risk?’, focusing on ways we may be able to help reduce our risk of developing dementia with brain healthy lifestyles. In conjunction with World Alzheimers Day™ 21 September, ADI launched the World Alzheimer Report 2014, looking at modifiable risk factors for dementia”.
