On the Issues: Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, Dec 1 

Join the Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 12:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall for an “On the Issues” with Hon. Martin Schreiber. 

Schreiber, L’64, has long been involved in Wisconsin politics, having served as governor and lieutenant governor as well as in the state Senate.  

His most recent campaign is the most personal, as he advocates for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients and caregivers, following the lengthy illness and death of his wife, Elaine. 

Alan J. Borsuk, Marquette Law School’s senior fellow in law and public policy, will talk with Schreiber about his book, “My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver.” Schreiber will describe some of his experiences and offer advice for families similarly affected.  

They will be joined by David Grams, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association Wisconsin Chapter.  

Register online to attend. A light lunch will be available.
