Program 5/26/15: Alzheimer's Research and CART

During the May 26th Rotary Club of Lake Hickory lunch meeting, Elizabeth Graves provided a sobering program on Alzheimer's disease and Rotary's part in finding answers as to cause, cure and prevention. She shared from her own personal experience with Alzheimer's disease in her family and how she often deals with it when ministering to families. Bill Shillito showed a video by Dr. Len Lecci of UNC-Wilmington discussing Alzheimer's disease. In the video Dr. Lecci explained how important it is to diagnose this disease early for the patient's and family's benefit as well as how costs skyrocket with later diagnosis compared to early diagnosis. Bill Shillito ended with an encouragement to contribute to the CART fund and reminded us that ALL the money goes directly to research!
