“Comics, Medicine, and Memory” 9/13 at TEDxBattenkill

September 2nd, 2014 by Colin Tedford · No Comments

Aliceheimer’s author Dana Walrath gives one of the day’s seven talks at TEDxBattenkill 9/13 in Manchester Center, VT.

If Alzheimer’s disease brought humor and clarity into our lives, does this mean that our lives were utterly crazy beforehand? Perhaps it was a bit of insanity that led me to move Alice, into our home just as our nest was about to empty, just as she was losing her marbles. But with a community of help that included pirates, good neighbors, a cast of characters from space-time travel, and my dead father hovering in the branches of the maple trees that surround our Vermont farmhouse, Aliceheimer’s let us write our own story daily—a story that, in turn, helps rewrite the dominant medical narrative of aging.

Tickets are $75 and include a welcome reception, seven live talks, a Vermont cheese station, wine and beer reception, a local chef locavore potluck lunch, TED videos and an after party with the speakers at TED Restaurant.
