Jason Karlawish (PARC Research Associate) was interviewed on a recent episode of the Innovative Podcast to discuss his new book, The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned a Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It. The book "tells the story of the biomedical breakthroughs that may allow Alzheimer’s to finally be prevented and treated by medicine, and indicates how we can live with dementia: the ways patients can reclaim their autonomy and redefine their sense of self, how families can support their loved ones, and the innovative reforms we can make as a society that would give caregivers and patients a better quality of life."
Rebecca A. Hubbard, PhD, an associate professor of Biostatistics, and Jason Karlawish, MD, a professor of Geriatrics and co-director of the Penn Memory Center, were reappointed to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Committee on Care Interventions for Individuals with Dementia and Their Caregivers.

Jason Karlawish said a recent study on aging and scam awareness doesn’t prove a link between susceptibility and cognitive decline in seniors in the Associated Press. However, Karlawish says, the results “should be a call to action to health care systems, the financial services industry and their regulators.”
Jason Karlawish's Forbes articles, "Why Bankers, Financial Analysts And Doctors Need To Start Working Together" and "Spend Some Money To Make Money, Or The Opportunities Of Whealthcare" were quoted in a U.S. Securities And Exchange Commossion's Office of the Investor Advocate June report.
