Alzheimer’s Awareness Campaign Goes Global

September marks World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Friday, September 21, 2012, is the day when Alzheimer’s organizations around the world, as well as caregivers and families with people who have the disease, will concentrate their efforts on raising awareness of Alzheimer's.
