Advancing Brain Health Care
Launched by a visionary philanthropic investment from Dagmar Dolby and her family, the Ray Dolby Brain Health Center at CPMC has helped hundreds of local families deal with the tremendous stress of an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis. Now Mrs. Dolby’s son David Dolby says the center’s next step in advancing care is adding a prominent research component.
To that end, it has hired Alireza Atri, M.D., Ph.D., formerly of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School to hold the Ray Dolby Endowed Chair in Brain Health Research. “This place is meant to constantly be evolving as we leverage the best new approaches for Alzheimer's care," says David. “We want to make a positive impact on patients and their families, and we welcome the participation and support of the entire local dementia community in our efforts."
