For our first rounds in 2018, we welcome Dr. Gayatri Devi, a neurologist and graduate of the Narrative Medicine program at Columbia, who will speak about her book The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias (Workman, 2017).

And imagine how that would change the outlook of the 5 million Americans who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, not to mention their families, loved ones, and caretakers. A neurologist who’s been specializing in dementia and memory loss for more than 20 years, Dr. Gayatri Devi rewrites the story of Alzheimer’s by defining it as a spectrum disorder—like autism, Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects different people differently.
