Alzheimer’s Disease is the 6th leading cause of death in Wisconsin. One in six people over the age of 65 are affected with the disease. The good news is the monumental ongoing effort to identify, track, treat and prevent the disease.
Perpetual Notion Machine host Patrick Sajbel welcomes back Dr. Nathaniel Chin, assistant professor in the division of geriatrics and gerontology with patients in the UW Health Memory Clinic, medical director of the WI Alzheimer’s Disease Research Study and the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention Study.
Dr. Chin focuses on Alzheimer’s as the most common form of dementia, noting UW research and resources, including clinics, and the extensive data collection to track and understand the disease. He has created over 100 podcasts on Alzheimer’s research to help in the advancing field of care and prevention.
