- According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by 2060 the number of Alzheimer’s disease diagnoses is expected to reach 14 million — more than doubling current cases.
- Between 2015 and 2060 the largest increase in diagnoses of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias will occur in the Hispanic and African American populations.
- Across all races, women are two times more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease primarily because women have longer life expectancy.
