About My Guest (in Loving Memory)
Martha Clare Morris, ScD, a pioneering researcher of the connection between diet and Alzheimer’s disease, died peacefully following a battle with cancer on Feb. 15 in her home in Oak Park, Illinois, surrounded by her family. She was 64 years old.
Morris was a professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, assistant provost of community research and the director of the Rush Institute for Healthy Aging at Rush University Medical Center. She also was director of the internal medicine department’s Section of Community Epidemiology.
For more than 20 years, her work in nutrition and dementia was funded by numerous grants and resulted in many important findings published in high impact medical journals. Since 2017, she had led a nationwide clinical trial of the effectiveness of a diet she helped develop in preventing Alzheimer’s dementia.
