Abstract

In the absence of disease-modifying therapies, clinicians face an urgent need to be aware of potential interventions to reduce risk of, delay onset of, and at least in some cases prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Although there is no “magic pill” to prevent AD, evolving evidence can assist in answering a common question from patients: “Is there anything that I can do to reduce my risk?”1,2 In The Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease: Lessons Learned and Applied, Galvin eloquently and comprehensively provides a practical scientific overview for clinicians whose patients will inevitably ask how they can protect their brain health over time.
