Keys Bags Names Words is a quirky and inspiring lens portraying stories of the personal and global impacts of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It follows a cohort of young scientists and artists from around the world as they harness every aspect of creativity, humor and compassion to lead the way towards hope and resilience.

The documentary features OHSU's own Walter Dawson, D.Phil. Dr. Dawson is Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology, OHSU School of Medicine, and Assistant Professor, OHSU-PSU School of Public Health.  Dr. Dawson studies the public policy implications of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias including the financial impact on families and the public programs that finance care. His specific research interests include global health policy, long-term services and supports financing, and interventions to better support people living with dementia including improved cognitive screening and dementia detection.
