This recent article in The Delphos Herald highlights the differences between Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD) and Alzheimer's and delves into the different types of FTD.
In the article, Susan Dickinson, the Executive Director of The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration’s (AFTD), is quoted saying, “It’s an uncommon disease that not many people understand,” Dickinson detailed. “Many physicians are unaware of the disease which results in misdiagnoses or delayed diagnosis.”
We at Project ReMind are working to increase awareness for this disease that affects 50,000-60,000 Americans. Take a look at our FTD fact sheet to learn more about Frontotemporal Degeneration.
