Join us for our April TED Talk topic: My Stroke of Insight.
Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness -- shut down one by one. An astonishing story.

About the speaker - Jill Bolte Taylor, Neuroanatomist
Brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor studied her own stroke as it happened - and has become a powerful voice for brain recovery.

Discussion forum following presentation will be facilitated by Anna Grant, Active Adult & Senior Services Supervisor, City of Healdsburg.

All ages are welcome, free to attend.
