The speaker at the meeting of the Rotary Club of Kendal on 11th May was one of our own members, Past President Robert Sykes, who gave a presentation about Alzheimer’s Disease.
He explained that there are two distinct organisations connected to the disease, the Alzheimer’s Society and the Alzheimer’s Research Society. He clarified exactly what each organisation does and how they work together.
The aim is to find a cure and also ways of diagnosing the illness earlier. Current research is very positive and it is hoped that a cure can be found in the not too distant future but it all depends on finding sufficient funding.
