Preventing or delaying Alzheimer's Disease

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:08 pm on 22 May 2017

When it comes to Alzheimer's disease, our DNA is not our destiny. That's the message of best selling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova. Her originally self published book, Still Alice, became an Oscar winning film.

Lisa Genova says there are so many factors within our control that can help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's, like sleep, cardiovascular health and exercise.

She shares her insights with us on both science of neurological disorders and the human impacts.
