Associate Professor, Neurology

According to the Alzheimer's Association, 1 in 3 seniors will die with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. The National Institute on Aging describes Alzheimer’s as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory, thinking skills and eventually the ability to carry out simple tasks. Join us for a presentation from Michael Lin, M.D., exploring Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia, as part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series at the Kips Bay Library. Dr. Lin received his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco and completed his neurology residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital before coming to Weill Cornell Medicine to study Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases that affect cognition. He is the director of the Weill Cornell Medicine Memory Disorders Clinic, where he sees patients clinically and oversees clinical trials of new Alzheimer's therapies.
