In just a few short years, the first of the 78 million baby boomers will begin to turn 65 and enter the age of greatest risk for developing Alzheimer's disease.

There are still many unknown factors surrounding Alzheimer's, but researchers have made great strides.

In this episode of HealthSmart, learn about the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's...find out if the lapses in your memory are something you should be concerned about and what you can do to help your mind stay healthy as you age. Check out the program at the end of this post!
