World Alzheimer's Day
Alzheimer's is a deadly disease of old age and its prevalence has increased dramatically in the last decade. Studies show that one person in the world gets dementia every 3 seconds. In Iran, the issue of honoring the elderly is very important and it is one of the cultural principles of the Iranian people. Alzheimer's prevention and management of old age is one of the goals of Arak University of Medical Sciences, for which screening projects and cooperation with international NGOs are among the programs of this group to achieve this goal. Lifestyle modification, nutritional tips and trying to maintain mental health are effective factors in reducing the risk of developing this disease.
