Episode 22

AlzAuthors with Marianne Sciucco, RN

Published on: 11th October, 2021

Today’s show is a wonderful conversation with one of the founders of AlzAuthors, a global community of authors writing about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias from their personal experience.

I believe that one of the most profound elements to change is both sharing story and experience as well as receiving knowledge from those that have a shared experience. In a time where so much information about the disease is "medicalized", it can be so important to have access to a more personalized experience.

In today's episode, Marianne talks about the founding of AlzAuthors, the power of story and how a small, grassroots group of caregivers are making waves as authors. I hope today’s show has helpful information for you!
