On New Year’s day GoLocalProv announced that it had selected Stephen Salloway, M.D. as its Man of the Year for 2019. Dr. Salloway, a world leader in Alzheimer’s research, is director of Neurology and the Memory and Aging Program at Butler Hospital and Martin M. Zucker professor of psychiatry and human behavior, professor of neurology at Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The honor comes after Dr. Salloway was also inducted into the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame in May, 2019.
Dr. Salloway’s professional accomplishments and contributions to the field of Alzheimer’s research are staggering and continue to grow. As the founding director of the Memory and Aging Program at Butler Hospital, for the last 22 years he has, from his offices on the Butler Hospital campus right here in Rhode Island, played a major role in advancing the study and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia for the entire world.
Under his direction the program has conducted over 100 clinical trials and research studies. Each of them has provided another small step forward in the fight against Alzheimer’s through deeper insights and understanding into how the disease develops, how it can be diagnosed earlier and more accurately, and how it might then be treated more effectively or even prevented altogether. Today, those many small steps are building to what Dr. Salloway and his team hope will be a giant leap in Alzheimer’s treatment in the next several years.
