Dr. Joseph Sirven: 'We're Throwing The Entire Kitchen Sink' At Alzheimer's Disease

The Show frequently checks in with Dr. Joseph Sirven, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, to discuss the latest news from the medical world.

Researchers are investigating whether near-infrared light could help reduce the risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease.

It’s what those researchers call a novel but promising approach, and it’s just one of many, many other attempts to fight the disease as it becomes more prevalent.

The Show spoke with KJZZ’s medical commentator, Dr. Joseph Sirven, about this study.
