Dr. Paul Nussbaum

And while it is fragile, (the brain) is the most magnificent system ever designed, capable of more than we can presently know and deserving of a lifetime’s dedication to health.

In his new book “Save Your Brain” (McGraw-Hill, April 2010), clinical neuropsychologist Paul Nussbaum, Ph.D. shows readers how to ward off memory loss, improve brain performance and increase mental fitness by implementing a brain healthy lifestyle today. Having spent more than twenty years caring for those suffering from dementia and related disorders, Dr. Nussbaum will discuss his book and the five critical areas of brain health on the September 13 radio show.

"My book represents my attempt to provide a tangible guide for preserving access to our identity, to our loved ones, to our life story," according to Dr. Nussbaum. "And while it is fragile, (the brain) is the most magnificent system ever designed, capable of more than we can presently know and deserving of a lifetime’s dedication to health.” To learn more about Dr. Nussbaum, visit http://www.paulnussbaum.com/.

Dr. Gordon Atherley is a physician trained in Britain and now based in Canada. He is the talk show host of “Family Caregivers Unite!” on the VoiceAmerica.com variety channel. On the September 8 show with eCareDiary.com, Dr. Atherley discusses how his show seeks to expand recognition of family caregivers as persons who by their own efforts and at their own expense subsidize the healthcare system. After retiring from medical practice, he became an activist for family caregiving which explains the name of his show.
