As part of the Talbot County Free Library’s ongoing partnership with The Talbot Spy, Bill Peak has just completed an interview with Dr. Jason Karlawish about his newest book, The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned a Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It.
Dr. Karlawish is a Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and Co-Director of the Penn Memory Center, where he cares for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. He is a leading authority—perhaps the leading authority—on Alzheimer’s. He is also a terrific writer and storyteller. Peak, whose father was a doctor who eventually developed Alzheimer’s, describes Karlawish as “a true humanitarian, a physician who listens to his patients, learns from them, and teaches other doctors to do likewise.”
Dr. Karlawish’s new book, The Problem of Alzheimer’s, is now available for check out from the Talbot County Free Library. You can watch Peak’s interview with Dr. Karlawish at https://bit.ly/TCFL-Karlawish.
