As Americans grow older, the number of cases of Alzheimer's Disease is expected to rise to more than double current cases. A new study out of UCLA projects 15 million people could have Alzheimer's Disease or its potential precursor--mild cognitive impairment-- by 2060. That's up from the current six million. There is no cure for Alzheimer's and researchers are working to untangle the mysteries of the disease to find better treatments. And if you love Cleveland and wear it on your sleeve---there's a new opportunity for you to show off your town to visitors and tourists.
