“The Problem of Alzheimer’s”

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.
