Bonny P McClain MSc, DC
Dr. Bonny P McClain is the founder and creative force behind Grapheme Consulting, Inc., the data-focused website Data & Donuts and the evolution of Alzheimer’s Disease in a popular blog, Alzheimer’s Disease: The Brand. Embracing a powerful scientific narrative Dr. McClain informs the design and analyses of real-world evidence utilizing both non-proprietary and proprietary data from large claims databases, electronic medical records, registries, and prospective clinical studies. Dr. McClain both tells stories with data found in the clinical literature and translates complex statistical concepts in an approachable and informative voice. More recently, she has focused on pragmatic and hybrid study design approaches by integrating ancestry data to yield a deeper understanding of genetic variants–and to replace race as a biologic proxy for social determinants of health.
