Today we doing something a bit different and highlighting an interview done on Dementia Chats which is a sister platform of Alzheimer's Speaks.  Dementia Chats features those diagnosed with various forms of dementia who speak out on a topic,  Todays topic, is the need for responsible media on Alzheimer's disease and other froms of dementias.  We think you will find this to be a very interesting conversation about how media impacts public beliefs about dementia.  How media can assist in reducing dementia stigmas and report realistic outcomes, not just what is pitched to them regarding life with dementia, cures, and support to reduce symptoms including both pharma and social engagement opportunities. 

Listen to this interesting conversation which gives ideas to improve reporting and give hope to those diagnosed or caring for someone who is.  Learn how media can give voice to those diagnosed and their families along with all the non-pharmaceutical supports and methods to assist them along with research to control symptoms and be a potential cure.
