Lighting Up Our Brains: Better Understanding Mental Illness through Advanced Discoveries

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the health care system. Emergency rooms are flooded with patients with mental illness, addiction, and behavioral problems; the health care workforce is exhausted; remote work is everyday practice; and aging baby boomers are driving an unprecedented increase in demand for care—all leading to rapidly changing health care needs. Meanwhile, advances in brain imaging and genomics are offering new tools to diagnose poorly understood mental illnesses.  

In this special statewide Mini Medical School program, learn about developing trends that are dramatically changing health care as we know it and discover what progress and partnerships are being made to address mental health and other health needs in Iowa.

Neurodegeneration: The Quest to Save the Aging Brain 

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease will affect millions of Americans in the coming years as people live longer and our population ages. With limited treatments and no cure for these diseases, there is a pressing need for progress. Join physicians and scientists from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases who are exploring the causes of neurodegeneration and using that basic science and clinical research to develop new treatments to advance care for patients and families with neurodegenerative diseases. This three-week Mini Medical School series will “simulate” medical school with hands-on activities and thought-provoking presentations to demonstrate how advances in neuroscience research are impacting quality of life.
