Spolight on Alzheimer’s Disease: Seminar by Dick Mora
Dick Mora spoke at the “Spotlight on Alzheimer’s disease,” an educational event presented at the CIRM Governing Board meeting on December 10, 2008. Mora, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2003, talked about his mother’s battle with the disease and the stabilizing effects of his current treatment. Mora’s wife, Nancy, also spoke about Alzheimer’s from the perspective of a caregiver.
Leeza Gibbons, a patient advocate member of the CIRM Governing Board and the founder of the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, introduced the Moras.
The CIRM-hosted event was presented in partnership with the University of California, Irvine at the UC Irvine Student Center
