Today, Alexander “Sandy” Halperin, joined us today to share his story of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and now raising awareness as an “National Advisor on the Early Stage Advisory Group,” for the Alzheimer’s Association. Sandy, was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2010 at the age of 60.
As a member of the national 2012 Early-Stage Advisory Group, Sandy hopes to bring awareness to what he calls “invisible illnesses” or medical problems that may not be readily seen by others. His goal is to speak on behalf of patients dealing with a cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s or dementia to a variety of audiences.
I also want to thank everyone for their participation today on the show. You had some great questions!
