San Diego Launches New Initiatives to Improve the Health of County Residents with Dave Roberts (The Pulse audio)

5/29/2015; 38 minutes

San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts, whose interest in running for the board stemmed from a passion for the well-being of children in the foster care system, talks about collaborations with his colleagues on a range of new health-related initiatives. These include a new Alzheimer's initiative to speed up the search for a cure and boost services for those afflicted and their caregivers. Alzheimer's disease currently affects 60,000 county residents and it's estimated the annual cost to hospitalize local dementia patients will roughly double by 2030, to upwards of $1.5 billion.
