Ask the Expert is an interactive webinar putting people with aphasia in touch with experts in aphasia-related fields including neurology and speech-language pathology.
Please join us for our next Ask the Expert chat on October 21, 2021, at 7 pm ET. Author Debra E. Meyerson, PhD will speak about her book, Identity Theft, by Debra E. Meyerson and Danny Zuckerman.
Identity Theft follows Stanford professor Debra Meyerson and her family on their journey to recover from a severe stroke in 2010. The book not only provides a valuable look at the broad possibilities for successfully navigating the challenging physical recovery, but also the equally difficult, often overlooked, and critically important emotional journey toward rebuilding one’s identity after a stroke.
You can submit questions about neurology and aphasia during the webinar using the chat box or beforehand by filling out this form.
All webinars will be recorded and available for viewing. They will be posted several days after the event.
