Located in Chicago, the Alzheimer's Association is a national voluntary health organization that is dedicated to advancing research for the causes, treatments, and prevention of Alzheimer's disease. The introduction section of the site contains materials that discuss the history of the organization, their accomplishments, and local chapters of the Association. Persons hoping to learn more about the disease will want to examine the About Alzheimer's section, which contains helpful materials about the medical nature of the disease, ten warning signs for detecting Alzheimer's, treatment options, and myths commonly associated with the disease. For those with Alzheimer's, a section that addresses ways in which they may cope with the condition will be very helpful. Finally, researchers will want to take a look at the area devoted to current research on the disease, along with a media section that highlights news about fighting the disease from around the world.
