During a recent visit to Florida to see my mom for her 97th birthday, and because she suffered some temporary memory loss for 24-72 hours a few days ago. We had the rare privilege to meet Dr. Mark Brody, a quintessential neurologist specializing in Alzheimer’s and memory loss… My mother and I were treated like guests to Dr. Brody, we were offered a selection of beverages, coffee, and snacks. As we walked through the office hallways, we were met by a wonderful theme of posters and signs… We met with professional yet jovial and down to earth neurologist, Dr. Mark Brody. He explained in perspective the reason for a baseline testing for my mom’s current neurological testing and he welcomed our questions. While I was at Columbia University in the doctoral program, the key thing I learned is that leaders make change happen. Dr. Brody is truly a shining beacon of light in this endeavor to improve his chosen field.
