The Problem of Dementia

Yes, it is still Brain Health Awareness Month, and although this blog is not specific to brain health, the webinar I am highlighting in it is not only a new way to see dementia… but shares what the author believes why it is a crisis, and what we can do about it.

You are therefore invited to a free webinar being hosted by Dementia Alliance International, a guest speaker who will present to us following the Annual General Meeting next week, with Dr Jason Karlawish, an eminent Physician and writer about his book, The Problem of Alzheimer’s: Why It’s a Crisis & What We Can Do About It.

About the presentation: Once upon a time, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias were rare diseases and then it became common and, quickly, turned into a crisis. Why? What happened? And how does knowing what happened help us decide what we should do about it? This “Meeting of the Minds” takes on these questions. 

About Dr. Jason Karlawish: Jason is a physician and writer. He researches and writes about issues at the intersections of bioethics, aging, and the neurosciences. He is the author of The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned a Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It and the novel Open Wound: The Tragic Obsession of Dr. William Beaumont and has written essays for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Hill, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He is a Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and Co-Director of the Penn Memory Center, where he cares for patients. He lives in Philadelphia.
