Roger Allan Moore Lecture on Values and Medicine

Healing the Mind: Writing Takes the Ache Away
Kay Redfield Jamision

Join the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine for our 20th Roger Allan Moore Lecture on Values and Medicine: Ethical, Religious, and Cultural Perspectives. Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, The Dalio Family Professor in Mood Disorders and professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will be our keynote speaker. Dr. Jamison is perhaps this country’s most famous writer about manic-depressive illness. Her books and articles not only help patients, they have raised society’s consciousness. Her public appearances inform Americans about the millions of fellow citizens who suffer mood disorders. Her work and life chip away at the stigma of mental illness. Dr. Jamison is a full professor of psychiatry who has researched widely on medication adherence and suicide. She’s co-authored Manic Depressive Illness: Bipolar Disorders and Recurrent Depression, the definitive book on the topic.
