BOOKING

Because of my wife Cindy’s affliction with early onset Alzheimer’s, my current focus is on brain health and our recent journeys together.  Invite me to speak about the following related topics:

  • Cindy’s overall journey of Hope with Alzheimer’s.
  • Why a healthy quality of life is the only effective treatment for Alzheimer’s.
  • How hiking improves brain health.
  • Caregiver advice for turning tragedy into inspiration.
  • Detecting the signs for Alzheimer’s and dementia.

I also do interviews for the media about kindness, community and humanity topics that were the focus of our American Discovery Trail journey.  Here are some potential media questions:

  • What are the virtues of being uncivilized?
  • How are brain health and humanitarian issues related?
  • What are keys to vibrant communities?
  • What are the five new demographics for those who are food-challenged?
  • What was the most inspirational act of kindness from your 5,000 mile walk?
  • What was the most inspirational example of community you observed?
