Not many people hope to work themselves out of a job. However Dr. Marwan Sabbagh, a board-certified neurologist and Banner Sun Health Research Institute medical director, has spent his entire career seeking to do just that as a leading researcher combating Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Sabbagh’s next step toward his self-stated unemployment goal is “The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook: 100 Recipes to Boost Brain Health,” a full-color cookbook and health guide he co-authored with Food Network star and Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Executive Chef Beau MacMillan.

To encourage everyone to get this valuable nutritional information in time for the holidays, Dr. Sabbagh will team up with the Sun Health Gift Shops inside Banner Boswell and Banner Del E. Webb medical centers and host a pair of book-signing events during December.  Dr. Sabbagh visits Banner Boswell Medical Center Gift Shop from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 before traveling to the main gift shop at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14.

According to, “The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook” outlines “…the latest evidence-based research on Alzheimer’s and nutrition, and presents a dietary plan …to enhance your health.”  More information about the book can be found at:

“The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook” will be on-sale at both events for $30 each. Dr. Sabbagh will also happily sign any previously purchased books.
