CAPRA is now streaming the first episode featuring an interview with Dr. Bryan James from Rush University. In this episode, Minding Memory co-hosts Matt Davis & Donovan Maust talk with Dr. James, an Associate Professor & Epidemiologist at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center, about dementia as a cause of death (vs. a contributing factor) and why that’s important in terms of understanding the burden of a disease on populations.
Episodes of Minding Memory Season 2 will be launched on a biweekly basis with the next episode coming out on Monday Oct 31. You can subscribe to Minding Memory on most podcasting platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
In this podcast we discuss topics related to dementia research. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for dementia research, and we have topics for both those new to the space as well as old pros. We start with some basics, like: What exactly is dementia? What are the different types of dementia? What is the TICS, if not a swarm of blood-sucking insects? But we also invite researchers on to discuss their interesting work to give you a glimpse at the questions, data, and methods moving the field forward. Minding Memory is co-hosted by Matthew Davis and Donovan Maust. Matt and Donovan are Associate Professors and health services researchers at the University of Michigan. Matt’s PhD is in data science and Donovan is a psychiatrist. The Minding Memory podcast is part of the Center to Accelerate Population Research in Alzheimer’s (CAPRA) at the University of Michigan, supported by the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health. Additional support also comes from the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation (IHPI) at the University of Michigan.
