In the new book “A Tattoo on My Brain,” retired neurologist Daniel Gibbs chronicles his journey with early-stage Alzheimer’s, from noticing the first symptoms of the disease, to receiving a diagnosis about six years ago, to advocating for early detection of Alzheimer’s. Being Patient will speak with Gibbs about his experience living with the disease after more than two decades caring for patients who have Alzheimer’s and the lifestyle changes he has made to slow its progression.
