An estimated 5.7 million people in this country have Alzheimer’s. And the search for a treatment or a cure has not been promising. Trial after clinical trial has failed. In the documentary, Turning Point, filmmaker James Keach, follows a team of scientists on the front lines of Alzheimer’s research and captures the disappointment and renewed hope of those working to disrupt the disease.
Join the Atlantic for a film screening in Washington D.C. for a conversation with leading experts about what it will take to advance the fight against Alzheimer’s.
