  1. Dr. Nash,
    I really enjoyed your presentation today. Always love a story and a real live one is powerful!! Thanks for taking the time to put all this together for your listeners today. I actually work at a church in Austin and the pastor I work for told me that you were HIS family doctor! He was unable to attend today, but I was there along with 2 of our church members. Thanks for putting your slides for reference up here and also the links to the screenings.
    I also like to 'garden' but I tend to go for the flowers, not the veggies. Though, if I had more sunshine in my yard, I would certainly try it again. I had a vegetable garden in Waco,TX one summer that it was over 100 degrees for 100 days...something like that. 1980. My bush green beans were the only things that made it. They were so good!
    Enjoy this beautiful weather in your garden tomorrow!

    1. thanks for attending the alzheimers symposium. i thought it was well attended and well done especially for the first one
      hopefully you and others found useful information from my talk and the other presenters talks
      dont give up on the vegetable gardening
