A Refresher Course On Alzheimer's

We're getting to know more about Alzheimer's disease over time.  And that's true in two senses: researchers understand it better, but more people have it, too. 

And there are still varieties of dementia that are not Alzheimer's. 

Dr. Patrick Gillette has come to know them well in his work at Rogue Community Health and elsewhere in the health care system. 

He'll speak about Alzheimer's later this week at a health conference in Medford. 

We bring him into the studio for a preview.
