I am extremely lucky to have a mentor named Dr. Max Wallack! His great grandma Gertrude and my grandma Ruth both had Alzheimer's disease. Both of us are only children, and we were both CAREGIVERS. That was our bond.
Dr. Max graduated from Harvard Medical School, and is now in his medical residency. He wants to be a neuroradiologist. A neuroradiologist studies x-rays, CT scans, MRIs PET scans, etc to see how the brain is doing. They can see early stages of Alzheimer's disease and other issues in the brain, their work is very very important!
Alzheimer's disease you better watch out! Dr. Max Wallack is on the case!
Dr. Max wrote the book Why Did Grandma Leave Her Underwear in the Refrigerator? to help kids learn about Alzheimer's disease. He based the book on me and my grandmother!
Here is a video of me reading the book when I was 7 years old!
