Updates from the Latest Alzheimer's Research with Dr. Richard Isaacson
Most people are unaware that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) begins in the brain up to 20-30 years before the first symptom of memory loss, giving time for people to make brain-healthy lifestyle choices before symptoms appear, in an effort to delay onset. Dr. Isaacson, from the Weill Cornell Memory Clinic, will discuss his latest research to improve memory and protect the brain. His work has been applied not only with patients, but also, with family members.
