Finding the Right Words with Authors Cindy Weinstein & Bruce Miller

Tuesday Nov 16th, 2021 –2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the 17th at 6am in Australia AEDT

Healing by Looking Back

Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with Cindy Weinstein, who was a graduate student at UC Berkeley, her father, Jerry, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. He was fifty-eight years old, and died 12 years later; unable to read, write, or speak.

So how does one deal with loss after loss, at such a young age? For decades, Cindy tried to get back to before, to come to terms with her father’s journey. Her healing begins, finally, in her new book, Finding the Right Words.

Cindy is the Eli and Edythe Broad Professor of English at the California Institute of Technology. She is the author of Time, Tense, and American Literature: When is Now? 

Joining us, is Cindy’s co-author Bruce L. Miller, MD, is the A.W. and Mary Margaret Clausen Distinguished Professor in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he is the director of the Memory and Aging Center and the codirector of the Global Brain Health Institute. He is the coeditor of The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia.

We are live today so call in and join the conversation.

ARTS & DEMENTIA EDUCATIONAL PANEL:

After receiving multiple requests to formally continue to highlight the artwork of those living with dementia, The Arts & Dementia Educational Panel will formally launch this November. All levels of artists and all types of art are welcome. Our goal is to elevate panelists work and ability to create beauty in many forms. They will share examples of various types of art they participate in, how, and why they started, what they have learned, and what they personally get out of making art. Panelists, do not have to attend all sessions.

Anyone living with dementia interested in participating, please reach out to Lori La Bey via email, or Private message her on FaceBook

Below is an Example of What the ARTS & DEMENTIA PANEL Will Explore & Share

As you will see from the sample video above, conversations are comfortable, casual, and fascinating. We have so much to learn from one another. All recordings will be prerecorded and published to Alzheimer’s Speaks YouTube channel with a specific playlist channel for easy access. Each episode will be pushed out on Alzheimer’s Speaks social media channels as well.
