This is a special episode, kicking off the new year with an exciting interview with Dr. Dave Morgan, CEO of the Johnnie Byrd Alzheimer's Institute.
The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care ofAlzheimer's disease and related disorders.
With a state-of-the-art building and a highly qualified team of physicians, memory care specialists, researchers and educators, they are in the forefront of Alzheimer's research and patient care.
The rapid growth of the Institute and the need for groundbreaking approaches to the care and treatment of patients with memory disorders has led them to develop the concept of the Center for Memory C.A.R.E. (Clinical Assessment, Research & Education). The entire second floor of our Institute is a revolutionary Center that provides the most up-to-date diagnostic and caregiving services to patients and their families in One Place.
We're very honored to have Dr. Morgan as our guest on this podcast. Many of us met Dr. Morgan when the Caregivers Support Group did their own field trip to the Johnnie Byrd facility las year. So, while "Ten Minutes with Paula" is normally a podcast about caregiving, today's episode is about helping you understand what's being done in Alzheimer's research and the incredible work Dr. Morgan and his team are doing to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.
