Dementia in the workplace
Upstate geriatrician Sharon Brangman describes the differences between normal aging and memory loss and what could signal the signs of an early dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease. With the current economic times, and people working longer, Dr. Brangman talks about how this may affect the workplace, and how to proceed if you have a concern about yourself or a coworker.

How can we manage complex, widespread health and medical issues like improving end-of-life care and managing our obesity epidemic? A critical first step is to gather knowledge and ideas from all of us with a passion for improving our future. TEDMED has launched an interactive web site where visitors can learn more about the 20 top Great Challenges of 2012, share ideas and comments, and ask questions from health leaders as part of TEDMED’s Great Challenges program.
