Notes

Abstract: This presentation discusses a research study on Alzheimer's disease in Texas counties. More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. The total annual cost of Alzheimer's and other dementias adds up to more than $148 billion. Alzheimer's disease poses an increasing burden on the health care industry due to the number of people at risk and nature of the disease. For this study, the author investigates whether Alzheimer's mortality rates will be influenced by dissolved aluminum concentration in the groundwater, race/ethnicity, gender, and whether Alzheimer's mortality rates are increasing over time.
