"About Alzheimer's" - A Power Point Presentation

During early 2007, I started working in collaboration with a young lady (Patti Paulson) to produce a power point presentation that would tell the story of Alzheimer’s. After the 5th edition of the presentation, (December 2007) Ms. Paulson discontinued her collaboration in this project. This current 10th edition (2012) of the Power Point slide presentation is titled “About Alzheimer’s”.
The purpose of the initial and the current versions of the Power Point Presentation was and is to tell the story of Alzheimer’s in a way that would inform the viewer in five (5) basic areas.
- The origin and history of Alzheimer’s as a disease.
- Inform the viewer as to the usual symptoms and the basic stages that the disease would progress through to an eventual termination.
- Show data on the prevalence, size and dimension of the Alzheimer’s disease problem to society in the United States and the State of Minnesota in particular.
- Identify and picture well known celebrities or public figures that have been or are victims of the disease Alzheimer’s, thus putting a face on the disease.
- Outline areas that individuals may assist in bringing about a public awareness of Alzheimer’s as well as promoting funding and research to find a cure.
As we have changed, updated and enlarged the presentation, we have gone through several editions of what is now currently our 10th Edition. (July 2012) It is our intention to each year, update statistical data relating to the disease as well as providing the most current information and making any necessary corrections in the data on the disease.
Currently the "About Alzheimer's" presentation consists of a total of 81 slides with a normal viewing time of approx. 20 minutes. This power point presentation is offered for download onto your computer for your individual viewing at Liesure and for presentation to others.
