Dr. Melissa Rosenkranz: Understanding the Relationship Between Asthma and Dementia

July 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT


On Thursday, July 11th, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, UW–Madison School of Medicine and Public Health’s Dr. Melissa Rosenkranz joins Being Patient Live Talks to discuss her research on the link between asthma and dementia, specifically focusing on the impact of chronic, systemic inflammation on brain health. 

Rosenkranz holds the Distinguished Chair in Contemplative Neuroscience at the Center for Healthy Minds and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the UW–Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. Her research focuses on understanding the underlying biology of the mind-brain-body interactions of stress, emotion, and the immune system. In her most recent work, Rosenkranz has been researching how inflammation, like that present in asthma, impacts long-term cognitive function and the risk for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

RSVP to this live talk to learn more about asthma, inflammation, and cognitive decline.
