Myriam Marquez (Patient Advocate)
Ms. Marquez was diagnosed with young-onset Alzheimer’s in 2009 and has been a fierce advocate ever since. Prior to her diagnosis, she served as a public defender in Washington State. Her legal background in county, state and federal public policy and her personal experience living with dementia has made her a deeply committed advocate for advancing dementia research, care and services.

NOTE: I started writing this the day after Myriam Marquez’s editorial appeared in the Miami Herald, but I got sidetracked, and only got back to it over the weekend. I don’t believe that the extra time has changed either Ms. Marquez’s claims or mine.
Myriam Marquez gets away with writing this crap because she’s part of the Cuban team of editors and executives that’s responsible for the abysmal lack of journalistic ethics that has befallen the Miami Herald in the last 10 years, which has not only contributed to the massive decline in readership, but to the trust and respect that the Miami Herald once had as Florida’s best newspaper.
