Experts: Alzheimer’s Could Cost U.S. $1 Trillion by 2050
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing problem, and some people are even calling it an epidemic.
Health experts and politicians gathered yesterday at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester to talk about how to deal with the projected increase in cases. Mayo experts stressed the importance of funding research and providing affordable resources for families.
Mayo experts estimate that Alzheimer’s treatment could cost the U.S. more than $1 trillion a year by 2050, which is more than the nation’s current defense budget.
