Dr. Deborah Barnes, Chief Science Advisor at Together Senior Health, sat down with Paul Vogelzang, host of The Not Old Better Show - Talk About Better® podcast, to discuss the current state of research and the treatment landscape of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Healthcare and health news is among the most popular topics for our Not Old Better Show audience. Science Daily and the National Institutes of Health now report that nearly half of all older adults now die with a diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s listed on their medical record, up 36% from two decades ago.
Our science and healthcare interview series guest today is Dr. Deborah Barnes. Deborah E. Barnes, PhD believes that the improvements in physical and cognitive function will have longer-term benefits, such as fewer falls, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations, and could also delay long-term care placement.
