This week: Alzheimer's overview, sunburn treatment and migraine information

Some forgetfulness is part of normal aging, but memory loss severe enough to interfere with your daily life could be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease -- the most common form of dementia.

Cathy James is the chief executive officer of the Alzheimer's Association of Central New York. She describes what this incurable disease does to patients and their families, gives an update on research and offers some healthy living tips that might lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

Also on this week's show: advice about sunburn treatment, and diagnosis and treatment of migraines and other headaches.
