Alzheimer’s Disease Story Photo

Amy Shives was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2011 and has since been involved with the Alzheimer’s Association. Nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease are women, and now some scientists are questioning the long-held assumption that it’s just because women tend to live longer than men.

      Thanks. The one thing is that I work with great editors who pull only the best and most relevant photos out of my selects to use in stories.
