On this edition of ST, as the week-long 2013 Alzheimer's Association International Conference comes to end up in Boston, we speak with Mark Fried, the president and CEO of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Fried tells us about some interesting new studies and findings that were discussed at this year's conference, namely those related to: the risk and prevention of Alzheimer's disease; advances in early detection; and clinical trials and ongoing therapies. He also tells about the efforts of the Oklahoma Chapter to raise money and increase awareness while also informing and supporting local families and individuals dealing with Alzheimer's. Further, Fried describes a new Alzheimer's Association volunteer program called TrialMatch, and reminds us that the next Tulsa-area Walk to End Alzheimer's is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, August 24th, near the ORU campus. (For more information on all of the above, please visit this link for the Oklahoma Chapter's website.)
