"Dr. Aryn Bush of the University of South Florida Polytechnic has been elected to the Alzheimer's Association - Florida Gulf Coast Chapter Board of Directors.

"I am truly honored to be elected," says Bush, a cognitive aging specialist and visiting instructor at USF Polytechnic.  "Individuals with mild cognitive impairment and dementia have influenced my life profoundly both professionally and personally. I have strong hope this new role will provide another avenue through which their voices may be heard.  

Within the 17 counties that comprise the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, an estimated 189,032 people live with Alzheimer's disease. Nationally, one in every 57 people of all ages has Alzheimer's disease. In Florida it is one in every 38 people. In the areas the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter serves it is 1 in every 30, and in two of the Chapter's counties 1 in every 19 people has Alzheimer's disease."
