On May 18, 2022, the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin hosted a webinar called "Alzheimer's Disease Prevention and Healthy Aging in People with Down Syndrome," presented by Brian Chicoine, MD, of the Adult Down Syndrome Center. 

Description: Alzheimer's disease is significantly more common in individuals with Down syndrome compared to individuals without Down syndrome. Sadly, we do not know how to prevent or cure this disease. However, there are steps that individuals with Down syndrome can take to promote healthy aging and potentially prevent or delay Alzheimer's disease. In this webinar, Dr. Chicoine described current knowledge of Alzheimer's disease prevention and treatment. He also discussed strategies for promoting healthy aging in people with Down syndrome.
