UCLA Alzheimer’s Series Makes Healthline’s “Best of”

We’re pleased to announce that the UCLA series “Heartache & Hope: America’s Alzheimer’s Epidemic,” a three-part series that premiered in September on UCTV Prime, has been named one of the 14 Best Alzheimer’s Videos of 2012 by Healthline.com.

Here’s what reviewer Tracy Rosecrans had to say about it:

Alzheimer’s Long and Costly Goodbye, the first in a series of educational episodes on Alzheimer’s produced by UCTV, offers a documentary-style look at this terrible disease. This high-quality episode offers everything from expert discussion of Alzheimer’s to personal insights from individuals currently experiencing the mental degeneration caused by the disease.

This short video will leave you wanting even more information and interpretation from the people who are most familiar with Alzheimer’s: the unlikely stars of this series. Watch it to gain a deeper understanding of this illness.  

We’re in good company on a list that includes everything from informative videos produced by the Alzheimer’s Association to emotionally gripping documentaries of individuals and their families taking on the disease.  You can check out all of their picks here.

According to its website, Healthline.com offers “objective, trustworthy, and accurate health information, guided by the principles of responsible journalism and publishing. Our editorial philosophy is to use relevant and accurate content to promote a healthy lifestyle and facilitate disease prevention, as well as to offer clinically significant, medically reviewed information for those who are seeking answers to their health questions.”

  1. 1906Saturday, November 21, 2009Please, YouTube Team:I’m somewhat new as a viiotsr to your Very Important Website with those zillions of videos.In a few days I have come to identify at least two essential things we users need:1) a label classifying certain “videos” as non-video (or something like that); this in reference to those cases in which we only see a picture or two alternating pictures or images; of course, we are listening to a song, an interview or something, but in my opinion we cannot consider them as proper videos.2) a loop or repeat functionality in order to enjoy our favorite videos playing them many times while we are typing in my personal case, when I like a song very much, I use to play it dozens or even hundreds of times in a session.(( Not necessarily a song that is to say, a musical video but also an interesting dialog or speech for example when one is viewing and listening to an English lesson. ))***Greetings from Mexico City.Thank You Very Much.

  2. Hey YouTube, while you are at it trying to make it esaeir for us to find videos, why don’t you also start taking care of business here and report criminal acts here on youtube to the police and FBI???? glennspam1 posted videos of him beating his cat. First all you did was delete them, but let his channel stay up for weeks. Then he added more videos, now you deleted the account. But have you taken any ethical and moral obligation to give a copy of those videos to the authorities? Please get your priorities straight because you are no longer the only hat in town and there are other video sites who have far better customer service and faster ban fingers when it comes to this kind of stuff.
