How Dr. Dye’s research is transforming health care

Cheryl is working with the Institute for Success in Aging at Greenville Health System to research the effect that exposures to environmental stimuli such as music and images may have on cognitive ability, engagement, and dementia-related disordered behavior among patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD).
