Hosted by Samuel D. Brinkman, Ph.D.

Bookmark Show
Our program is about Alzheimer’s disease and the many other disorders that can cause dementia. There are over 5 million Americans who currently struggle with Alzheimer’s disease alone, some of whom are in their 40s and 50s. Others struggle with vascular dementia, Lewy body disorder, frontotemporal dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and other conditions. This program brings together nationally recognized experts from many professional fields relevant to the dementias in order to provide current information about these disorders. These nationally recognized experts are from areas of research, diagnosis, clinical care, and management, caregiver education and support, medication treatments and drug development research, non-medication approaches to treatment, public education, and advocacy. We will give people who have been affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias a forum to talk with and learn from these experts. Listen Tuesdays at 4 PM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness.
