Midmorning: Alzheimer's disease and potter Warren MacKenzie

Kerri Miller takes Midmorning to Rochester today. At 9 a.m., she talks to an expert in the early signs of Alzheimer's disease about new research into how to make early diagnosis of dementia. Dr. Ron Petersen, MD, is director of the Mayo Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. The center has a new study on what it means to age well.
At 10 a.m., Kerri's guest is Warren MacKenzie, who's considered one of the greatest living potters. MacKenzie's work has won acclaim and a place in museums like the Smithsonian. He talks about his deceptively simple art form live from the Rochester Art Center, where a retrospective of his work is on display until August.
Tuesday, research was announced about a disease similar to Alz for which the standard Alz treatement makes it worse. Any idea where I can locate an idex to the latest released research news?
