A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is life changing for the person with the disease, as well as their family and friends. The changes don’t happen overnight. It starts with the small things and then it progresses. But what if there was a way of figuring out the early warning signs of slowing it down or preventing it? In this episode of The Big Questions podcast, Oxford Sparks visited Jennifer Lawson, Trials Manager from the Department of Psychiatry to ask: Can you stop Alzheimer’s before it even starts?
