Companion programs include the expert roundtable discussions Alzheimer’s: The Help You Need and The Future of Alzheimer’s, both hosted by actor and Alzheimer activist David Hyde Pierce.
“Ever wonder why we still need PBS in a world of 500 channels?… because no other network would do The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer’s, an invaluable, incredibly moving documentary.” —USA Today
