Alzheimer’s & American Nursing Foundation

Alzheimer’s & American Nursing Foundation

This week we highlight two interviews within the medical field. Our first interview is with Dr. Gad Asher Marshall about the current work the Alzheimer’s Association is doing to help track memory and find alzheimer’s trials at the first sign of decline. Participation in their research can be done from home, and may help with early detection in the future.
Our second interview is with Kate Judge, Executive Director of the American Nurses Foundation, in which we discuss their new initiative on nurses’ well-being. With the stresses brought on by the trauma of Covid-19, this initiative gives nurses access to digital mental health and wellness-related sources, tools and more to support their emotional well-being while taking care of those affected by the virus.
