Healthy Brain LA

Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias have a profound impact across all sectors of our society. As the population ages, this impact will only continue to grow. An estimated 166,857 Los Angeles County residents age 65 and older are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease alone and this number is expected to more than double by 2040.1 The Healthy Brain LA project aims to address the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias as a public health issue in Los Angeles County.
