As people age, they are at higher risk for neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The current supply of neurologists will not keep pace with the growing aging population—by 2025, the deficit of neurologists-to-patients will increase to 19%. In rural and underserved areas, people are even less likely to see a neurologist for specialized care. There are some parts of the U.S. that have up to four times as many neurologists as the lowest served areas.
