EUGENE, Ore. — More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease right now, and Tuesday night a local town hall meeting will help shed light on the problem in Lane County and across Oregon.
Experts will be talking about strategic plans at both a national and state level. Those plans are designed to help people who are affected by the disease become familiar with resources. Organizers say the meeting is a perfect time for people to ask questions about Alzheimer’s.
“What we really want is for folks to come out and talk about their perception–what they need, what’s been useful, what they’d like to see in the future. So we really want to hear about what everybody else is thinking,” said Debra Weinman, Regional Coordinator.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Campbell Senior Center, located at 155 High St. in Eugene.
