COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — NBC4 is committed to bringing viewers important in-depth information on Alzheimer’s Disease with interviews with local experts, personal stories from families and information on treatments and breakthroughs.

Hosted by Colleen Marshall, the 2021 special, “A Journey through Alzheimer’s,” will air Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. on NBC4.

During the program, viewers will have the opportunity to connect with a team of experts on Alzheimer’s staffing our CALL 4 lines who will answer questions from warning signs to services.

We talk to an Alzheimer’s patient who is reconnecting with his life’s work at the memory care center where he lives.

Also, hear from one of the nation’s leading Alzheimer’s researchers about the possibility of an Alzheimer’s vaccine, new treatments and if a cure could be on the horizon.

Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials: 

Plus, see what it is like to take a cognitive Alzheimer’s screening.

And, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis also carries a shocking financial obligation. We’ll show you how one family— and one group of teens— tackled the Alzheimer’s price tag.

Then, meet a young Ohio woman who discovered music can reach memories and prompt movement. Sometimes inspiring ‘song’ and ‘dance’ in those who’ve been silent and still for a very long time. It’s called the Dementia Project.
