Understanding Dementia

The Alert:

Statistics are out.

Every    68    seconds,    someone    in    the    United    States
develops Alzheimer’s.

One in three seniors die with some type of dementia.

It’s mind-boggling.

We need to have a better understanding of this disease.

The Offering:

A free on-line course.

“The University of Tasmania’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Understanding Dementia, is a 9-week online course that builds upon the latest in international research on dementia. It’s free and anyone can register.”

Understanding Dementia is designed to be accessible and appealing to people from diverse backgrounds

This course covers all aspects including:

The Brain

The Diseases

The Person

It sounds like a great opportunity.

Sharing promotes understanding.

Do you know of other on-line courses? Share here. And you don’t even have to write it in a poem. But, I’d be impressed if you did.
