There is a stigma attached to dementia even though it does not affect as many as most people believe. This is according to a new survey by AARP. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush tlaked with Sarah Lenz Lock, the organization's senior vice president for Policy and the Executive Director of the Global Coucnil on Brain Health about the disparity and what people should be looking to do.

Don Rush is the News Director and Senior Producer of News and Public Affairs at Delmarva Public Media. An award-winning journalist, Don reports major local issues of the day, from sea level rise, to urban development, to the changing demographics of Delmarva.
