Town Hall and The Alzheimer’s Association present
Understanding the Experience of People with Alzheimer’s Disease

Event update: Due to inclement weather conditions, tonight’s speaker Steven R. Sabat will be unable to travel to Seattle for the event. Instead, there will be video presentation of one of Dr. Sabat’s previous talks. Representatives of the Alzheimer’s Association will be facilitating the event and on hand for the Q & A after the video presentation.  

Our understanding people with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) has been dominated by a biomedical point of view and this context, focuses primarily on what people with AD cannot do. If we shift our way of looking at people diagnosed from a biomedical lens to a lens that focuses on what they are still able to do, we see a very different picture: we see ability where before, we saw disability. Steven R. Sabat, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Georgetown University explores this idea and provides examples drawn from his research.

Presented by: The Alzheimer’s Association and Town Hall as a part of our Science series.
