Long Live The Brains is produced by Dr. Philip Tipton, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Tipton has a passion for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. These diseases are particularly cruel and can impair how a person moves, thinks, and responds to their environment. Neurodegenerative diseases are the epidemic of our time. Dr. Tipton's goal is to address society's lack of awareness for these diseases and the abundance of inaccurate information about them. Long Live The Brains is one tool to accomplish this goal. The podcast is mostly interview-based to provide listeners with an up close and personal look at what neurodegenerative diseases are and how they effect the lives of patients and loved ones. The podcast will also keep listeners up to date on the state of healthcare and research involved in the care and study of these diseases.
