It is not every day that I walk out of a medical school lecture truly inspired.  The topic was on HIV and how far we have come in the treatment and management of the disease.  We’ve all heard how “HIV is no longer a death sentence,” but actually going through the details on how much success we’ve had in treating HIV is amazing.

Chicken Little was in the woods. A seed fell on his tail. Chicken Little said, The sky is falling.” So he ran to tell the king and everyone in the kingdom.

The other day my husband and I were making out our Last Will and Testament. Not a fun chore, to be sure, but ultimately necessary (though, of course, we're never going to die).

Married people live longer and healthier lives. Consider this: nine out of ten married men who are alive at 48 will make it to 65-years-old (no, it will not just seem like it) as compared with six out of 10 of men who are not married. Women on the other hand are in better shape statistically. So be aware men; Marriage can save your life. Be grateful. I will be forwarding this to my husband.

Remember the good old days when statins were the safest drug to take? Oh, wait, that was last month.

When my husband George and I launched the USAgainstAlzheimer’s Network last year, our lofty vision was to unite the power of US - researchers, millions of families and advocates, hundreds of companies and our public officials.

We believed (and still do) that together, we will spur the innovations in science, industry practice and regulatory processes essential to the discovery of safe and effective therapies needed to stop Alzheimer's.

Two weeks ago, I was sitting here combing through the newspapers and I was ecstatic that the lockout is over: the football season, not the government. The players and owners can get together. Maybe they should coach the government on negotiating and coming together. Oh, wait, they already offered to do that.

I have been to some Congressional hearings and might I sum most of them up right now: yawn.

Except for the hearing two weeks ago on Alzheimer’s. So maybe you have to be interested – okay, passionately involved – in the subject for a hearing to be interesting. You say Alzheimer’s and I’m there.
