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.
