Original broadcast date: July 21, 2017. We often know how to plan for the future, but find it hard to take the necessary steps. This hour, TED speakers challenge the inevitable and explore what to do today to prepare ourselves for tomorrow. TED speakers include neuroscientists Daniel Levitin and Rebecca Brachman, writer Lisa Genova, epidemiologist Seth Berkley, and behavioral economist Daniel Goldstein.
Rowan University Adjunct Professor and host Paul Perrello speaks with New York Times Best-Selling author Lisa Genova about her new book Inside the O'Briens as well as her previous books including Still Alice, which was adapted into a movie and took top honors at this year's Oscars. Genova, a neuro-scientist turned author, recounts how she had to self-publish Still Alice because no one was interested in the topic of Alzheimer's Disease.
