orhood at the Wilson Health Care Center that serves those with dementia. Ms. Mansfield is also the daughter of a mother with Alzheimer's disease.

Barbara will address some of the more difficult challenges that caregiver's face and the need for caregivers to find ways to take care of themselves.

They constantly reaffirm my belief that, in their own way, love and faithfulness are stronger than any disease," says Ms. Mansfield.

The Thursday, August 13, 2009 screening will present Part 1 of the Momentum in Science segment of the HBO documentary, which details the current explosion of knowledge within the scientific and medical communities--from imaging the earliest signs of Alzheimer's disease, to understanding the roles that genetics and lifestyle might play, to the tremendous and exciting progress in the effort to develop drugs to treat or even prevent the disease.

A presentation will follow the screening featuring J. Kevin Foskett, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Physiology and Chair of the Cell Biology and Physiology Program at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. "Dr. Foskett is an American Health Assistance Foundation 2008 grantee whose work is certainly groundbreaking, involving research into the relationship between a protein called presenilin and the brain's way of regulating calcium concentrations. Dr. Foskett has shown that presenilin disrupts the regulated calcium in cells causing a cascade of events including accumulation of free radicals, which can run amuck and ultimately lead to Alzheimer's disease. His work also looks at how the altered calcium signaling affects brain cell pathways and communication," notes Guy Eakin, Ph.D., Director of Research Grants, American Health Assistance Foundation.

Dr. Foskett will also discuss Al
