Today’s guests are in financial spaces then brain places. In the first segment, Doug Ressler manager and analyst at Yardi Matrix, explains how Irvine is such an expensive home ownership proposition, the first year costs considered. This analysis was in partnership with Point2homes. Then we’re off to the annual tradition of the UCI MIND leading edge science about Alzheimer’s Disease (approx. minute 31:00); UCI MIND’s director of education Megan Witbracht brings their 34th annual conference in Irvine themed, “Sex and Gender in Dementia Research and Care,” and will be held Friday August 25th, 8am-3:15 p.m. Irvine Hilton OC Airport 18800 MacArthur Blvd., or virtually on your screen.

For the full hour is Kate Abate, Gerontologist, Olympian Athlete, Healthspan Implementation Research & Development. As a gerontologist she offers insight about elder abuse under our very noses; along the continuum, from intentional to not so intentional. Together we slogged through an unwieldy and useful conversation about our elders as we collectively strive for better aging outcomes, or just plain better aging scenarios. A short reading list of Kate’s recommendations includes: Louise Aaronson, “Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life,” “Atul Gawande, “On Being MOrtal,” and Chip Conley, “Wisdom at Work,” and the eldercarelocater: https://eldercare.acl.gov/Public/Index.aspx.

Returning to the show is Dr. Jason Karlawish, professor of medicine, medical ethics, health policy, and neurology at the University of Pennsylvania, and co- director of the Penn Memory Center. He brings his newly released book, “The Problem of Alzheimer’s; How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned A Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It.” It is a history, a manual, a call to action, and potential for a play; all in one book. Music credits: Greg Foat, “Symphonie Pacifique;” Chet Baker, “I Remember You.” http://www.kuci.org/podcastfiles/984/KarlawishPod5-4-21.mp3
