The Alzheimer's Project HBO Documentary Puts Spotlight On Alzheimer's Disease; Premiere Screening at the Hennepin County Library in Downtown Minneapolis
Date:4/30/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, April 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Association Minnesota-North Dakota in collaboration with the Hennepin County Library is premiering the "Caregivers" segment of The Alzheimer's Project on May 12 at 6:00 p.m. at the Hennepin County Central Library. The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer panel of medical experts and caregivers.

"Momentum In Science" (May 11 and 12) is a two-part state-of-the-science film that takes viewers inside the laboratories and clinics of 25 leading scientists and physicians, revealing some of the most cutting-edge research advances.
