video update

heres the update on our video
former physician takes action in the face of alzheimers

it appears that we ended up in 4th or 5th place in the fan favorite
portion of the neurofilm festival

the video which you can watch by clicking the title above
has been watched by hundreds of people in the last week

compared to the other videos and the one that won first place
it was watched three times as much as the number one video

this video has been on youtube for several months
its link and the video itself has been featured in this blog and 
on several alzheimers association websites and the 
national institute of healths website and the huffington post

but since this contest its viewership seems to have taken off
in fact since the contest ended on thursday night the numbers 
who view it have continued to grow

for that reason i consider this entry into the neurofilm festival
after all its getting the film out there with its story on early detection 
that is important

plus the grand prize selection is not related to the popular vote
but is based on 
the story 
the quality of the film 
the presentation of the story 

that will be decided in early march

whether we win that one or the runner up and get our video 
shown at the american academy of neurology or not
as long as more and more people view the video and 
listen to the story 
thats whats more important
