Pamela Newman: An Alzheimer’s Journey, From Frustration to Revelation to Hope

By any definition, Pamela J. Newman, Ph.D. and her late husband Henry (Hank) Kates were a power couple. But when Alzheimer’s struck Hank, suddenly the Newman-Kates family felt powerless. Together, they valiantly fought the disease until Hank’s death in 2016 at age 77. For years, Dr. Newman has been an ardent supporter of Alzheimer’s research and ADDF, serving on the Board of Overseers since 2013. In recognition of her dedication, we recently honored Pamela with the Charles Evans Award at the Tenth Annual “Hope on the Horizon” Fall Symposium & Luncheon in New York City.
