In line with this goal, this morning's panel at the 2013 Milken Institute Global Conference will highlight the critical positive contribution to global economic growth and sovereign operating budgets with the prevention of Alzheimer's.  The panel, titled "Stopping Alzheimer's: Personal, Economic and Policy Imperatives," will feature experts with diverse backgrounds across health, technology, drug development, foreign policy and advocacy, who will share key insights and perspectives about the impacts of Alzheimer's on patients and caregivers, the global healthcare system, foreign policy, and global growth and competitiveness.
