IDPH Recognizes June as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month to Promote Cognitive Health

The Iowa Department of Public Health is recognizing June as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. More than 66,000 Iowans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease - a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. This is also a time to recognize caregivers for the support they give; approximately 73,000 Iowans provide unpaid care to individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
