Program for the public and professionals. Registration is required.

Our monthly Speaker Series provides educational information on a variety of dementia and caregiving-related topics. Our target audience for this series is professionals who may work in dementia care and community members who may be interested in learning more. The goal of the series is to increase awareness around these topics and to provide a space to have questions answered.

Finding the Right Words: A Story of Literature, Grief, and the Brain written with Dr. Bruce Miller, is a memoir about her life as an English professor and daughter whose father suffered from early-onset Alzheimer's. She received a fellowship from the Global Brain Health Institute at UC San Francisco for this project, and she spent a year taking classes on neurology, attending seminars on caregiving, and shadowing physicians, during which time she also studied the memoir genre.
