Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, The Danio Family Professor in Mood Disorders and Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will speak about not just understanding bipolar disorder, but also her efforts to educate the public about mental illness, to destigmatize these disorders, and the lives of the many people who suffer mental illness.
