The Baltimore County Public Library presents Dr. Tia Powell, who will be speakling at the Hereford Branch of the BCPL!
Dementia Reimagined is a moving combination of medicine and memoir, peeling back the untold history of dementia, from the story of Solomon Fuller, a black doctor whose research at the turn of the twentieth century anticipated important aspects of what we know about dementia today, to what has been gained and lost with the recent bonanza of funding for Alzheimer's at the expense of other forms of the disease. In demystifying dementia, Dr. Powell helps us understand it with clearer eyes, from the point of view of both physician and caregiver. Ultimately, she wants us all to know that dementia is not only about loss--it's also about the preservation of dignity and hope.
The cultural and medical history of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is explored by a leading psychiatrist and bioethicist who urges us to turn our focus from cure to care. Author Tia Powell, MD discusses her own experiences of family members who were diagnosed with dementia. By examining the background of the history and progress of dementia research, she gives readers the physician’s perspective, while also providing insight on how to help those suffering from the disease and their caregivers achieve the best quality of life possible. Books available for sale and signing after program.
