Consortium chair Susan M. Wolf and Dr. Ronald Petersen (Mayo Clinic) were interviewed yesterday about the practical, ethical and legal implications of new tools for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. The interview was conducted by Kerri Miller of MPR News, and focuses on Dr. Petersen's recently published research, with Prof. Wolf weighing in on the nuances of translating it to clinical practice. Phone calls from people already diagnosed with Alzheimer's and those who have a family history of the disease illuminate the challenges of grappling with this heartbreaking illness.
