I have been invited o attend this year’s “AD Eaters ” event held on the 7th of April, 09 at the Avenues Cinema.
Jill Bolte Taylor (born 1959) is a neuroanatomist who specializes in the postmortem investigation of the human brain. She is affiliated with the Indiana University School of Medicine, is the national spokesperson for the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center, and is the consulting neuroanatomist for the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute.
Her own personal experience with a massive stroke, experienced in 1996 at age 37, and her subsequent eight-year recovery, has informed her work as a scientist and speaker.
For this work, in May 2008 she was named to Time Magazine‘s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. “My Stroke of Insight” received the top “Books for a Better Life” Book Award in the Science category from the New York City Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on February 23, 2009 in New York City.
