How to make dementia a rare disease by Dr Dale Bredesen

As part of our daily blog series forĀ World Alzheimerā€™s Month #WAM,Ā Ā Dementia Awareness Month #DAM, orĀ World Dementia Month, although we continue to highlight stories about, or by our members, who all live with a diagnosis of dementia, we are also pleased to publish other content related to living with dementia.

Hence for today, we are publishing the video recording of a recent #DAI Brain Health meeting with guest speakerĀ Dr Dale Bredesen, and also attach his power pointĀ slides. Professor Bredesenā€™s talk describes the first reversals of cognitive decline in patients with early stage Alzheimerā€™s disease and a recent successful clinical trial.

Dale is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimerā€™s disease and other dementias, and the author of the New York Times bestsellers The End of Alzheimerā€™s, The End of Alzheimerā€™s Program, and the newly released The First Survivors of Alzheimerā€™s.
