Upcoming Speaker Series
The Pandemic’s Psychological and Social Impact on Veterans
It’s Better … and Worse Than You Think
Sunday, April 11th, at 10:00 a.m.
Featuring Professor Michael Green, TAE member and neuro-scientist at UCLA
Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82870195111
Dr. Green has been tracking the psychological and social impact of the pandemic on three groups of veterans: those with a psychotic disorder, those who were homeless, and a control group. The results are surprising as well as counter-intuitive.
Dr. Green has impressive credentials. He is a Professor-in-Residence in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and he is Director of the Treatment Unit of the Department of Veteran Affairs Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC). He obtained his B.A. in psychobiology at Oberlin College, his doctorate in neuropsychology at Cornell University, and his postdoctoral training in neuropsychology at UCLA. He is an associate editor for Schizophrenia Bulletin and on the editorial boards of Cognitive Neuropsychiatry and Schizophrenia Research. He has authored over 230 journal articles. He has received numerous grants from NIMH, the Veterans Administration, and private foundations.
While we are unable to provide our normal Sunday morning fare of lox, bagels, cream cheese and other tasty treats, we are working hard to provide stimulating and thought-provoking topics from a broad spectrum of speakers. We hope you’ll find these Sunday morning speaker events enlightening, thought-provoking, entertaining and worthwhile.
