Our cover story looks at the career and advocacy of actor/writer/director/producer Seth Rogen (page 18), who along with his wife has been a powerful voice for a greater commitment to Alzheimer’s disease research. On the subject of research, we have news from the Fisher Center laboratory, as explained by Dr. Jean-Pierre Roussarie, a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Dr. Paul Greengard (page 12).

What is the connection between oral health and Alzheimer’s? We talk with two doctors about what we know now and what the future may hold as we further explore that possible connection (page 16). We also explore the impact Alzheimer’s is having on women, both as patients and caregivers (page 27), and we take a look at whether Alzheimer’s deaths have been underreported—and why (page 10).

What is “shadowing,” and how can you handle it effectively? Find out in our story on page 8. Learn more about how hobbies can help relieve the stress of caregiving (page 14).

We hope you are enjoying your spring, and that you find this issue of Preserving Your Memory to be a positive addition to your season!
