Alzheimer's center director discusses burden of disease
Walter Kukull's dad said he should rely on brains over brawn for a career. So he did, coming to presenting his dissertation at UW in the 1980s and then starting a long career in the study of Alzheimer's disease. Today he is a professor of epidemiology and directs the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center.
Writer Jeff Hodson spoke with Kukull about his life and about the growing problem of Alzheimer's amid our aging population.
