"Alzheimer's Narratives: Voicing the Experience of Patients and Families."
David H. Flood, Ph.D., Professor, Health and Society Programs, Drexel University
Rhonda L. Soricelli, M.D., Chair, Section on Medicine and the Arts.
This illustrated presentation will show that through analyses of Alzheimer's narratives - those written by patients as they descend into the disease, by caregivers as they struggle to cope, and by writers who enter imaginatively into the lives of those affected - we can come to a better understanding of the disease and its dreadful impact. Jason Karlawish, MD, Fellow, Institute on Aging, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Danita Vetter, MA, Vice-President of Programs and Education, Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, will contribute to the follow-up discussion.
