The beauty of living is found by Dr. Milton Newman who, after 15 years of misdiagnosis with Alzheimer's Disease and general dementia, is diagnosed with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH). Often referred to as "the treatable dementia," Dr. Newman gets his life back after the successful implantation of a shunt to drain fluid from his brain. Approximately 700,000 Americans are living with NPH, a condition that has no cure and where the only treatment requires brain surgery. To learn more about NPH, research into the condition, and to find support and educational resources, please visit www.hydroassoc.org.
