Provide specific examples to support your response.

Additionally, from the e-Activity below, I need assistance suggesting possible changes in how the detection and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease could be addressed in the U.S. Please explain the rationale.

“e-Activity – Use the Internet to research the current impact to the U.S. health care system from the number of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.”
