Big turnout for season finale of Baycrest’s popular Speaker Series!

May 13, 2010

The Season 2 finale of Aging, Innovation and the Mind attracted 350 people to Baycrest’s Wintergarden on a cool, rainy evening May 13 to hear Dr. Marla Shapiro, health and medical contributor for CTV’s Canada AM, interview Baycrest’s Chief of Psychiatry Dr. David Conn about “aging and depression” — the myths, the risk factors, the various treatments, and the lifestyle strategies that can help mitigate the risk of developing this debilitating mood disorder. During the Q&A session at the end with the audience, Dr. Nasreen Khatri, clinical psychologist and head of the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy program at Baycrest, joined Drs. Conn and Shapiro on stage.
