This event was held on January 11, 2006 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
With winter upon us, many dread the coming months of short gloomy days and cloudy weeks. This is Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. At this event, Dr. Melvin McInnis from the UM Depression Center will discuss recent research of SAD and focus on treatment options, including light therapy. He will then be joined by UM Depression Center colleagues Dr. John Greden and Dr. Randy Nesse, and local practicing psychiatrist Dr. Tom Zelnik, for a panel discussion and question/answer session with the audience.
This event is part of the Library's Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2006 program, which focuses on the theme Revolutions In Science.
While this panel discussion is part of the Library's January - March Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads program, it also marks the beginning of a series of community discussions with the UM Depression Center. Set to occur 3 more times throughout 2006, these discussions, entitled Bright Nights, will offer an opportunity for community members to obtain up-to-date information on a variety of topics related to depression.
