Long Live The Brains (LLTB) was created by Dr. Philip Tipton, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic; and, it is currently produced & co-hosted by Dr. Tipton & Kandice Jacobs Robinson, Florida licensed funeral director and Dementia Friendly America Champion. Both Dr. Tipton & Kandice have 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. The shared goals of the LLTB co-hosts are: (1) to address society's lack of awareness for these diseases and the abundance of inaccurate information about them and (2) to create a sense of community among patients, their caregivers and others poised to serve in a support capacity. The podcast is mostly interview-based to provide listeners with a 360 degree look at what neurodegenerative diseases are and how they affect the lives of patients and loved ones. The podcast will also keep listeners up to date on the state of healthcare, research involved in the care and study of these diseases, and resources available to those impacted.
