SOCIAL REMEDIES FOR DEMENTIA with Daniel R. George
Show Notes

In AMERICAN DEMENTIA Part 1, medical anthropologist Daniel R. George discussed how market-driven policies and practices are amplifying our vulnerability to cognitive decline and dementia. In this episode, Part 2, we focus more on potential solutions.  George makes it clear that our political and economic decisions have a profound impact on the collective health and wellbeing of our bodies and brains.  Unless we address the pathologies of current practices, we condemn future generations of older adults to ever-increasing levels of dementia.
