New Chapters in Community Health - The Problem of Alzheimer's by Jason Karlawish
Madison Public Library, The Wisconsin Book Festival and the All of Us Research Program at UW-Madison are joining forces to present a virtual author event series focused on a range of community health issues.
The series, titled New Chapters in Community Health: Healthier Communities for All of Us, will include four author events featuring compelling stories and engaging discussion about important health issues. The events, which are free and open to the public, will especially focus on issues impacting those who are often underrepresented in health research, such as Black, Latinx, 65+ and rural communities. As part of the partnership, copies of each book will be distributed for free to the first 100 attendees who sign up. During the event, there will be a link at the bottom of the screen, fill out the form, and a book will be sent to you.
Rich in science, history, and characters, The Problem of Alzheimer's takes us inside laboratories, patients' homes, caregivers’ support groups, progressive care communities, and Jason Karlawish's own practice at the Penn Memory Center to examine Alzheimer's journey from its beginnings to its recognition as a crisis.
