Doctors call it an epidemic. In Minnesota, almost 98,000 people suffer from Alzheimer's.

Hundreds of people from across the country came to St. Paul on Saturday for the "Meeting of the Minds" conference to address alzheimer's.

Among them, Pat Summitt, the winningest college basketball coach of all time. She captured eight national titles during her 38-year career.

Summitt has early onset Alzheimer's.

At the current rate, doctors believe as many as 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer's by 2025.
