TTUHSC El Paso Holds Q&A on Alzheimer’s and Dementia

On Friday, June 23, the Office of Institutional Advancement held its latest session of The Exam Room — a monthly Facebook Live Q&A that invites the public to submit questions to health care professionals at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).

This month, Ricardo Salazar, M.D., a clinical researcher in the Department of Psychology, hosted a session on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Dr. Salazar, who specializes in geriatric psychiatry, neurodegenerative disorders, and emergency psychiatry, recently published research on how Alzheimer’s disease manifests differently in Hispanic populations.
