Alzheimer's Speaks gives voice to all dealing with dementia.
Today, our first guests will be Dr. Ashford of MemTrax. and who has developed a computerized memory measurement system to screen for memory problems, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease: www.memtrax.com. Learn about protecting your brain as you age. The memory test, which is interesting, engaging, and challenging, has the potential to efficiently screen for the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease and serve as an inexpensive and practical approach to testing approaches to Alzheimer treatment and prevention.

Our second guests are Greg O'Brien, veteran journalist who has dementia and Dr. Molly Perdue. Greg has been featured in several news features and has written the book On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s. This book is about living with Alzheimer’s, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor—a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease.
