Former OHSU Neurologist Details His Own Case Of Alzheimer's
The concern many of us feel about dementia later in life is shared by Daniel Gibbs. But he knows more about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, because he's a neurologist formerly working at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.
So he spent years working with Alzheimer's patients before his own diagnosis, a story he tells in the book A Tattoo on my Brain, written with journalist Teresa Barker.
Dr. Gibbs visits the JX to talk about his experiences as both doctor and patient on Alzheimer's cases.
