Dr. Sanjay Asthana, director of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) and associate dean for gerontology at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, joined Wisconsin Public Radio’s “The Larry Meiller Show” to answer callers’ questions about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
The Wisconsin ADRC is unique in the nation as the first federally funded Alzheimer’s research center focused on geriatrics. The center not only explores the science of the disease, but its investigators are also involved in patient care and support for caregivers. Dr. Asthana answered questions about advancements in brain imaging, early detection of Alzheimer’s disease, and disease prevention.
“Alzheimer’s Research” aired on April 11, 2017, on Wisconsin Public Radio.
