“I am using my brain to wipe out Alzheimer’s by putting a focus on health issues affecting older adults. Global Health Aging was launched to feature a broad range of news, research and original commentary on aging and health issues from around the world. My brain has allowed me to gain an education in gerontology, work with various organizations that help older adults, and improve my advocacy skills to champion research on Alzheimer’s disease. As a global public health problem, the need to know more about this disease is crucial, whether or not people are personally affected by it.”
