Podcast: Can we cure Alzheimer’s Disease?

In collaboration with Indiana University School of Medicine, the Healthcare Triage podcast has returned. We’re starting this series off talking to Dr. Liana Apostolova about Alzheimer’s disease. What is Alzheimer’s disease? How is it treated? What’s the most promising line of research? All this and more on the Healthcare Triage podcast.

The Healthcare Triage podcast is a spinoff of the award-winning Healthcare Triage YouTube series, which is hosted by me, Dr. Aaron E. Carroll. Healthcare Triage explains health care policy and medical research and answers a lot of other questions people may have about medicine, health and health care.

This episode of the Healthcare Triage podcast is presented in association with IU School of Medicine, whose mission is to advance health in the state of Indiana and beyond by promoting innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care.

Learn more about Alzheimer’s research on the IU School of Medicine website.

You can also find the podcast in all the usual places, like iTunes and Soundcloud.
