Still Alice: Understanding Alzheimer’s
(2018/2019 Lectures)

Sat, Mar 9
7:30 PM
Available on the Mind & Body series

“In examining disease, we gain wisdom about anatomy and physiology and biology. In examining the person with disease, we gain wisdom about life.” – Oliver Sacks

Alzheimer’s doesn’t have to be your brain’s destiny, says Harvard-trained neuroscientist and bestselling author Lisa Genova. She will share the latest science investigating the disease and promising research on what each of us can do to build an Alzheimer’s-resistant brain. Dedicated to demystifying neurological disorders, Genova has penned the New York Times bestselling novels Still Alice (now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore), Left Neglected, Love Anthony and her latest, Every Note Played.
