ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Early detection is vital for those who have Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. The earlier they are diagnosed, the earlier they can plan, get connected to programs and services, or participate in a research study.

Dr. Milta Little, an assistant professor and program director at Saint Louis University’s Division of Geriatrics-Internal Medicine, visits Fox 2 News to discuss signs of Alzheimer’s and screening services for the illness.

Fox 2 has partnered with the St. Louis chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to host a call center to answer your questions about this cognitive disease.
