THE BRONX - The Alzheimer's Association and Lincoln Medical Center are bringing awareness about Alzheimer's into the Latino community.
Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. and one that can't be prevented or cured. The Alzheimer's Association, New York City chapter, says Latinos are one and a half times more likely develop the disease.
The association says many times the community isn't aware that there are free resources to educate them about the disease.
The association offers an ID bracelet or pendant to be worn by the affected individual.
