Greg was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2009 at the age of 59.  , Greg decided to tackle his disease and imminent decline by writing frankly about this journey in his latest book, "On Pluto: Inside The Mind of Alzheimer's. "On Pluto" has won numerous awards and Greg is also the subject of the short film, "A Place Called Pluto.” Greg is here to share with us strategies for embracing adversity with strength, determination, optimism and humor.   

In his book-Greg talks freely about what it is like to slowly lose your mind, and to see slices of your very identity slipping away piece by piece. Because of his more than 35 years of newspaper and magazine experience as a writer, editor, investigative reporter and publisher, this veteran journalist has the outstanding ability to communicate objectively the patient perspective of living with this condition, the symptom burden, longitudinal course of the disease, and its impact on family.
