ASTHO/CDC Webinar: Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map & Role of State Leaders
In 2013, an estimated 5 million Americans aged 65 and older have Alzheimer's disease. By 2050, unless more effective ways to prevent and treat the disease are identified and implemented, the prevalence may triple to as high as 13.8 million people. In 2013, the total direct payments for all healthcare, long-term care, and hospice services incurred by those aged 65 years and older with Alzheimer's and other dementia's are estimated to be $203 billion. In an effort to reduce these numbers, ASTHO has partnered with CDC to implement CDC's Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map part of CDC's Healthy Brain Initiative.
CDC's Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map outlines how state and local public health agencies and their partners can promote cognitive functioning, address cognitive impairment for individuals living in the community, and help meet the needs of care partners. Specific actions are addressed in four domains: monitor and evaluate; educate and empower the nation; develop policy and mobilize partnerships; and assure a competent workforce.
This Webinar will provide background on the development and goals of the CDC's Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map. It will also discuss strategies for state leaders to identify areas where collaborative opportunities exist to utilize the Road Map.
This is the first Webinar of a Healthy Aging Webinar series focusing on strategies and partnerships for improving and sustaining the health of older adults and their communities.
