Guest Host: Susan Page

Research on Alzheimer’s focuses on two areas of the human condition that are perhaps least understood: aging and the brain. A panel talks about the devastating disease that can take away memory, personality, and basic cognition, a painful process for the patient but also for friends, loved ones, and caregivers.

Guests

  • Dr. Marcelle Morrison-Bogorad Associate director of the neuroscience and neuropsychology of aging program at the National Institute on Aging
  • Dr. Dean Storer Associate clinical professor of geriatric psychiatry at George Washington University
  • Sarah Harris Caregiver to her husband who was diagnosed as having Aszheimers two years ago at the age of 55
