Brian earned his doctorate in microbiology and immunology from the Indiana University School of Medicine. He is also a Board Certified Medical Affairs Specialist. He spent 3 years at Alma College as a professor of biology and biochemstry before moving to Cary, NC in 1998. He served as the Director of Medical Information at Voyager Pharma, a small biotechnology company focused on finding a therapy for Alzheimer's disease, then as a Senior Director of Clinical Operations in GSK's Alzheimer's program. He left GSK to become a Senior Clinical Project Leader at the Duke University School of Medicine where he worked for 10 years. Brian is passionate about sharing information that might help people live more fully in the midst of Alzheimer's disease or possibly prevent or delay the onset of AD by lifestyle modifications. He has particular interest in finding creative ways to help caregivers live happier lives.
Our objective is to provide a place for people to come to get current and sound information on how they might proceed when faced with a diagnosis of dementia either personally or in a loved one. To be a place where they can ask questions and interact with other folks; an alcove for learning about how to possibly prevent or delay the onset of dementia and ideas about how to better cope with circumstances if dementia is already present.
We've been writing and posting information about this and other topics on venues like Facebook for a while now and have decided to make that information more accessible to the public. We have products listed on our site. EVERY ONE of those products has been assessed for its value to a caregiver or patient through 1,000's of hours spent in chat rooms and caregiver support FB pages - asking questions and listening - finding out what they really want and need and what's worked for them. If you click on a product, it will take you to another site - like Amazon for example. You'll be able to buy the product there for exactly the same price that you would going through your Amazon account - in fact you will be going through your Amazon account - but if you click on it through our link, we get a small referral fee that help us funding our work.
All of the products are those that we believe in and many have been referred to us directly by caregivers. If you don't want to buy them through our link, that's fine, but I hope you'll look at them as they might be of value to you.
Our focus is the sharing of peer-reviewed and accurate scientific literature regarding Alzheimer's disease, updates on current thinking regarding possible prevention and community for discussion among caregivers about ways to best interact with their loved ones while supporting their own health and well-being.
