The Beatriz Lab is an interactive story tool for teaching medical professionals, long term care providers, and family members about Alzheimer's Disease. I had the pleasure of working as a programmer on this project. More information is available on my resume or via email.
Topic: Loss of Cognitive Functions due to progressive AD.
Summary: The learner will embody Beatriz, a middle-aged Latina woman, as she progresses through early, middle, and late stage Alzheimer’s Disease. (AD).
