Alzheimer’s Prevention and Treatment
Tuesday, September 21, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Half of people who reach 85 years will have Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
Neuroscientist Dr. Rudolph Tanzi will present the newest information on the causes
of Alzheimer’s disease and review the remarkable progress in understanding this
complex disease, including his lab’s discovery of four genes that cause the disease. He’ll also discuss the emerging therapies to treat Alzheimer’s and reduce risk. Finally, Dr. Tanzi will talk more broadly about how to keep our
brains healthy and sharp through a variety of lifestyle interventions.
Dr. Rudolph Tanzi is a world-renowned
Professor of Neurology at Harvard University,
and Director of the Genetics and Aging
Research Unit at Massachusetts General
Hospital. He is investigating the genetic
causes of Alzheimer’s and developing
therapies to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Tanzi and Dr. Deepak Chopra discuss the
tools to help prevent Alzheimer’s and other
chronic diseases in their trilogy of best-selling
books and accompanying PBS shows: Super
Brain, Super Genes, and The Healing Self.
