Guest: Dr. Tom Dow, Mindful Diagnostics & Therapeutics
The statistics are troubling: Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and it cannot be prevent, slowed, or cured. One in nine people 65 and older have Alzheimer’s, and the share increases with age. However, medical science is advancing, and Eau Claire’s Dr. Tom Dow is exploring ways to identify the risks of Alzheimer’s disease early and to mitigate those risks.
In this episode, Dr. Dow talks with host Lisa Wells of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County about Alzheimer’s disease, the factors that impact it, and an exciting vaccine study happening right here in Eau Claire.
