Alzheimer’s Awareness

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Learn about Alzheimer’s disease by visiting the Alzheimer’s Awareness display, on exhibit throughout November, in the main corridor of Booth Library. The display has been curated by students in the EIU chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

On November 15, 2017 at 5:00 p.m., Dr. Britto Nathan will speak about Alzheimer’s Awareness in Booth Library Witters Conference Room 4440. The program is free and open to the public.

In the presentation, Dr. Nathan will discuss the biochemical and molecular pathways that lead to Alzheimer’s disease. A better understanding of these pathways may one day help researchers develop novel therapeutics to combat Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Nathan is professor and assistant chair of Biological Sciences at EIU. Nathan’s presentation is sponsored by the EIU chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

More than 5 million Americans are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Within the next few decades, this illness is predicted to be on the rise. The only drugs that exist specifically for Alzheimer’s disease are purely symptomatic and are not able to slow the progression of the disease.

In addition to the books below, which are on display and available for checkout, view these reference articles in our Gale Virtual Reference Library that give a quick overview of Alzheimer’s disease.

Watch these videos about Alzheimer’s disease via our Kanopy Streaming Video library.
