Brain Scan for Alzheimers

The Alzheimer Society of British Columbia is running Brain Scan, a television commercial for Brain Awareness Week, March 12 – 18. The ad urges audiences to protect memories and support research to find the causes and cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The name D F Chalcraft that appears in the top right corner of the brain scan in the PSA is Rethink employee Glen Chalcraft’s father, who is living with dementia.
