As we get back up to speed on our regular episodes, we thought we'd treat you (and ourselves) to something out of the ordinary: a conversation on how visual storytelling can shape how we think - and feel - about Alzheimer's disease. Host Naila Kuhlmann had the pleasure of interviewing Gina Martin, who founded the Bob and Diane Fund to support and promote visual storytelling about Alzheimer's and dementia. Tune in to get the backstory on the fund, an auditory glimpse at the work of this year's winner, a discussion on the social narrative of Alzheimer's disease, and reflections on the role of th ..read more
