Workshop will offer insight on Alzheimer's Disease

According to Editor and Publisher, the National Press Foundation is offering "what's billed as the first comprehensive program for journalists on Alzheimer's Disease."

The program will last for four days and, according to a National Press Foundation announcement, will feature experts on topics such as the most recent research for prevention, diagnosis and treatment and the "costs of care and lost productivity." Plus, the workshop will include the personal stress of care-giving.

The program will include discussion with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and fifteen fellowships will be given to "qualified print, broadcast and online journalists," states the article.

The workshop will also deal with "steps families need to take before it's too late," according to NFP. There will also be sessions to help digital and broadcast journalists "find, modify and use the graphics that will grab an audience for this complex story."

After completing the online application, a journalist needs to submit a letter of support from a supervisor as well as two work samples. Applications must be sent in by 5 p.m. Eastern time on October 18.
