Hilary Blumberg, MD to Discuss the Neuroscience of Bipolar Disorder and New Approaches to Treatment
Dr. Blumberg is the John and Hope Furth Professor of Psychiatric Neuroscience and Professor of Psychiatry, of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, the Child Study Center, and Director of the Mood Disorders Research Program, at the Yale School of Medicine. Her research is devoted to understanding brain circuitry differences that underlie mood disorders and the associated high risk of suicide, and circuitry changes in mood disorders across the lifespan. She directs the Mood Disorders Research Program at Yale. She studied neuroscience graduating summa cum laude as an undergraduate at Harvard University and completed her medical degree, psychiatry training and specialty training in neuroimaging at Cornell University Medical College, prior to joining the Yale faculty in 1998.
Dr. Blumberg will give a presentation on how Neuroscience is offering new hope in treating bipolar disorder. She will speak about bipolar disorder as a brain disorder and will highlight her cutting edge research on a new psycho-behavioral treatment that can help prevent suffering and suicide. Further insight regarding this treatment will be presented by the two licensed clinicians who work on the team, Bernadette Lecza, LPC and Erin Carrubba, LPC. The audience will gain a better understanding about bipolar brain research and new treatments, hope in brain neuroplasticity, and how to help your loved ones.
