This week's University Beat looks at how one teacher used Skype to continue teaching her Honors College classes while in the middle of the ocean on a once in a lifetime research cruise.

Wine-Alzheimer's Study

Can red wine change the course of Alzheimer’s disease? Not red wine specifically—but a component of it that can also be found in chocolate, berries and peanuts. The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute is taking part in a national study that hopes to determine what part that component plays in slowing down memory deterioration. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has all the tasty facts.
