Mayo Alzheimer's Expert Featured in Nature

We couldn't let this one go by without commenting. Ron Petersen, M.D.,Ph.D.,  head of Mayo's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, is the subject of a Q&A article in Nature. As head of the new national task force on Alzheimer's, he minces no words about the burden of the disease on the nation and how it will only get worse as the Baby Boomers age. Calling it an impending "health crisis," he also says that diseases don't rear their head at ideal economic times, but it's something we'll have to deal with.
