A Healthy Book Club: The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind

April 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Join Valley View and the Glenwood Springs Branch Library for A Healthy Book Club.

This bi-monthly book club is designed to bring the community together with health experts around a newsworthy health topic.

Neuroscientist Barbara Lipska was diagnosed early in 2015 with metastatic melanoma in her brain’s frontal lobe. As the cancer progressed and was treated, the author experienced behavioral and cognitive symptoms connected to a range of mental disorders, including her professional specialty, schizophrenia. Lipska’s family and associates were alarmed by the changes in her behavior, which she failed to acknowledge herself. Gradually, after a course of immunotherapy, Lipska returned to normal functioning, recalled her experience and, through her knowledge of neuroscience, identified the ways in which her brain changed during treatment.

This event is free to attend.
