NEW ORLEANS - People who suffer with Alzheimer's eventually forget their names, heir families and even basic bodily functions.
As of now, the disease has no cure.
But, there are clinical trials that you can join to help doctor's find out more about the disease.
Tim Kemmery, a representative of the Louisiana Research Institute, Marianne Call, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and Michele Robert, president and chair of the Alzheimer's Association, were in the studio with more information.
The "Walk to End Alzheimer's" is Saturday, October 13. Check in begins at 8 a.m. It starts on Lakeshore Drive at Shelter 1, which is near Landry's Seafood.
