University of Michigan professor speaks on Alzheimer’s research

MARQUETTE — A professor at the University of Michigan was in the Marquette area Tuesday evening to discuss the latest developments in Alzheimer’s research.

The featured presenter, Bruno Giordani, Ph.D., is the Chief of Psychology and also works in Psychiatry, Neurology, and the School of Nursing in Ann Arbor. His research initiatives focus on a cross-cultural perspective on the early assessment of cognitive and behavioral changes associated with medical illness. Giordani says he’s happy to work with the Alzheimer’s Association.

“One of the goals for our center has to be getting the message out about Alzheimer’s Disease,” said University of Michigan professor, Bruno Giordani, Ph.D. “We work closely with the Alzheimer’s Association, we work closely with the Great Lakes chapter, for example, in doing a whole sequence of these research nights.”

The Association is preparing for their next walk to end Alzheimer’s, which will be held in September.
