Dr Odenheimer was faculty at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, University of South Carolina and Harvard Medical School before joining OU College of Medicine to develop a geriatric curriculum for medical students.

At his own cost, he has travelled the country giving speeches of support to thousands of Alzheimer’s caregivers. He was elected to the local Alzheimer’s Assn Board and serves on the Advocacy Committee, meeting with our legislators to increase research funding to find a cure.
