Jason Karlawish, UPenn PRC SIP Investigator, discusses the realities of detecting and living with Alzheimer’s in the 21st century, in response to the novel and film adaptation Still Alice and its effect on the national conversation about Alzheimer’s.
The UPenn PRC is a catalyst for research in chronic disease prevention and a leader in advancing the science and practice of prevention research. Along with our ongoing studies in cancer prevention, cognitive health, and new strategies for weight loss, we’re researching adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancers, the economic impact of clinical trials, and a Penn-community partnership, the Philadelphia Health Leadership Institute. We invite you to learn more about these projects and our dedicated investigators and staff on this website.
