On Deck - Tuesday, September 14, 2021
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Tuesday, September 14, 2021. Our top story is about how former Peoria Park District director Bonnie Noble has died at age 80. You’ll also hear about how Doctor Ken Fukuchi is among researchers hoping to find a treatment for Alzheimer's Disease. Fukuchi, a professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria, was recently awarded a $2.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health for a five-year study with a goal of developing preventive and therapeutic solutions. Fukuchi discusses the project with WCBU reporter Joe Deacon.
