>> i'm so excited and actually it's wonderful to see those pictures from 2 years ago. so much has happened in the world and for people with alzheimer's. but it will be amazing to be together to unite in the fight against alzheimer's. >> doctors since you said then what are some of the things that have happened in the last couple of in regards to alzheimer's. >> well, unfortunately, covid particularly impacted people living with alzheimer's and other types of dementias. so they were more likely to develop covid more likely to pass away from covid and also suffering from tremendous isolation. so we saw truly devastating impact on our constituents living with alzheimer's. but there's also been some good developments that have happened in the last 2 years said new treatments that are available and even developments around a potential test for alzheimer's. so even during the pandemic progress is being
made. >> you reference the treatment that folks might have heard of out of helmet. it came on to the market this summer. it was controversial. the cost of it. the manner in which it was approved the effect of this even where does that stand. >> yeah, i sure wish it hadn't been so controversial because for any of us who've loved ones or care about this. we wanted it to be a clear cut win and it is a win in that it is the first of its type. it's the first drug in this class that could potentially alter the progression of the disease. but perhaps what we're most excited about is that there are others on the heels of ad you so? this represents the first but not necessarily the best. and so we have to continue to work to make sure more drugs are accessible and available and that there are affordable to everybody. it's not going to
work if we have a treatment for all timers that nobody can afford or access will doctor the back to that new drug. bottom line. is it too early to tell. is it making any difference. i think it is too early to tell. we still have relatively few people who access the drug. and so the was all along from the fda for there to be more research taking place and that could take years for us to really get a sense in the meanwhile, there are other drugs that are following in their footsteps so we may even see new drugs emerge before we learn more about whether the biogen drug affected. all of this, of course, costs money, which is why it's important to have things like walk tomorrow to raise funds for. >> research to ultimately find a cure. >> it is. it is. it easy for you to stay positive and optimistic and keep the pedal to the metal because yeah, it is so devastating for folks
who have a family member who are just going through this torture is tight. >> it is. you might think it would be hard and certainly it's hard seeing people who are suffering and to lose loved ones to alzheimer's. but i don't know if you can tell from the pictures of the walk to end alzheimer's. but it's an incredibly uplifting healing event to be yet to know that you're not alone as you're facing. what could perhaps be the most difficult challenge ever faced. and as you can see from the smiling faces on the screen there are lots of you've been to this and we're all in it together. and we welcome you to join us even from home if you don't feel comfortable coming out. >> doctor there is. i think the perception and may not be correct that more people than ever are getting it. i mean, is there any truth to that. is it just that people are living longer. >> we are older than ever before. so there are more baby boomers and so the most likely
explanation for this experience and you're not imagining it. we probably do more know more people with alzheimer's because there are more of us living longer and those numbers are going to continue to grow and grow, which makes this this work and frankly the walk so important we need to tackle this now. >> elizabeth, that really. we appreciate your time. i'll see you and elizabeth, of course, the executive director of the local all simers chapter, they're all over this. one is northern nevada and northern california and so they get a good night's sleep. a bright and early tomorrow. fear 27, thanks, not all right. you and the specifics just a reminder. if you're able to join us that would be so special. really is an emotional and uplifting event. you saw the flowers blowing there in the when there's a whole ceremony regarding those registration starts at 9. if you're not registered get their sign up. they have masks. they'll distance its covid friendly.
the actual ceremony starts at 10 and the walk will kick off at 10:30am in the morning. so looking forward to seeing so many folks there, especially after we had to do it all virtually last year. yeah, the 2019 video was inspiring huge crowd. alright. look at this coming up with but to help. >> got to see this one k 9 is helping his community will show you how. take a look
at this adorable leopard cub all little martha got some hops there and little put it what it is. and i think it but you know before yesterday at the santa barbara zoo. i mean, that's a big get for being brand-new. almost 3 months old. the little cub is going to be slowly eased into her outdoor home and her time in front of the public will be slowly increased in the following a week or 2. they're in santa barbara. her mom ajax will be nearby ajax. why would you name a leopard ajax. maybe because her tongue cleans as well. as ajax think probably going classical. but i would think what a sicko these types a more leopards are in more leopards are the most endangered kinds of leopards and all of the land. they're really trying to save these things. and hopefully this is a good step in the right direction. now to a world
