The Time is Now!


By Mark MD MPH

A newly released study demonstrates that approximately one third of Alzheimer’s cases worldwide are attributable to seven modifiable risk factors: depression, physical inactivity, diabetes, midlife hypertension, midlife obesity, smoking, and low educational attainment.

The largest proportion of cases was attributed to physical inactivity, which affects more than half of all Americans. Depression, which affects approximately 14.8 million Americans, accounted for approximately one in ten cases of Alzheimer’s disease globally.

Mark J. Harris received his MD/MPH from Columbia University in May 2015. He will be starting Anesthesiology residency in June at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. Mark is interested in the intersection between medicine and public policy, especially as it relates to chronic disease prevention (such as for diabetes, heart disease, and obesity), and he wishes to merge medicine, outcomes research, and public policy to address issues of perioperative risk factors, pain management, and end-of-life care.
