Guest: Chuck Bautista Board of Directors and chair of the 2020 Denver Walk to End Alzheimer's  Alzheimer’s is a global disease that over 47 million people around the world live with, 6 million in the US and 76,000 in Colorado.  Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death, it kills more people then breast and prostate cancer combined.  2/3 of those living with Alzheimer’s are women.  African Americans are twice as likely and Hispanics are 50% more likely to be affected by Alzheimer’s.  The Alzheimer’s Association will be holding their virtual walk on Sept 19th.  Denver has one of the largest walks, with over 12,000 people registering last year.    If you would like to participate in the walk you can join at www.alz.org/walk
