Worldwide, 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Million of these people are right here in the US.

Lewy body dementia is the third most common cause of dementia, experts estimate, after Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia, accounting for 5 to 10 percent of cases.

This will be the focus of today’s show.

Dr. Galvin is a Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and Director of the Comprehensive Center for Brain Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He is also Director and Principal Investigator for the Lewy Body Dementia Research Center of Excellence in South Florida.
