shutterstock_225478723The United States Senate Special Committee on Aging recently hosted a meeting entitled "The Fight Against Alzheimer's Disease: Are We on Track to a Treatment by 2025?" The meeting featured the personal testimonies of Dr.Ronald Petersen from the Mayo Clinic, a top Alzheimer's researcher and former member of the national Alzheimer's Association; B. Smith, a former model, retailer, restaurateur, actor and author who has been diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer's disease; and Dan Gasby, Smith's husband. "I've been a model and a TV personality, but now I have the most important job," Smith said to the committee. I'm here because I have Alzheimer's." Gasby talked about his experience one evening when he was among 1,000 fellow advocates from across the nation at the Alzheimer's Association's National Dinner. "What I saw there last night was a team," he said. "We're at the tipping point. We're going to push this over." Quoting lyrics from rap
