Alzheimer's Disease Program

en español


Alzheimer's disease is a major public health issue in Texas. An estimated 5.8 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer's disease in 2019. Approximately 390,000 of them are Texans. Without a cure or a way to prevent it, the number of Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease may triple to a projected 14 million people by 2050.

We work to increase awareness of Alzheimer's disease and address the burden it places on people living with the disease and their family caregivers.
