The Dr. Greg Jicha Show

Jan 17, 2017

Dr. Jicha is what everyone hopes a medical professor will be:  a person so fully invested in his patients and his scientific research that he sees both clinical care and research work as the same thing – trying to help his patients. Enjoy an hour with him as he explains risk factors, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

Tip:  Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in Kentucky.  We have 69,000 people with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 1400 Kentuckians died of Alzheimer’s disease in 2013.
