The Alzheimer’s Reading Room, a prominent blog on the subject, listed the upcoming Pace exhibition of “84 poignant photographs demonstrating a new global approach to caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias sharply disputing the stereotype of dementia patients as ’empty shells.'” The listing also mentioned the symposium on April 25.
The exhibition in Schimmel’ s lobby gallery through April 28 of 84 photographs by Cathy Greenblat, PhD, showing a positive approach to Alzheimer’s care in seven countries, was a “critic’s pick” in online Time Out New York. The related book has been positively reviewed in The New Scientist (UK), on Amazon.com (seven times), in the Bookviews’ blog, and twice on the influential blog Alzheimer’s Reading Room.
From the Alzheimer’s Reading Room:
“If you live anywhere near New York City you might want to consider trekking up to the city to see the, Love, Loss, and Laughter: Seeing Alzheimer’s Differently Photo Exhibition. The photo exhibit is being held at the Pace University Schimmel Center. The center is located at 3 Spruce St. between Park Row and Gold Street, just south of the Brooklyn Bridge and east of City Hall. The exhibition is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12 to 7 pm, from March 14 through April 28.

You might want to wait until April 25th. On that date, you can get to see the photo exhibit and a symposium about reducing the stigma of Alzheimer’s and related diseases.

The photographer and author, Cathy Greenblat, PhD, is a sociologist who arguably is the world’s leading documentarian of this new approach to Alzheimer’s care.”

“They’re wild animal and she’s a young falcon and she went out exploring,” said James Eyring, care keeper for Ophelia and assistant director of Pace University’s Environmental Center.”

White Plains Patch: Pace Professor Publishes Newest CD ‘Earthdance Anthology’

Pace professor Evan Pritchard and his native American music were featured in the White Plains Patch.

Pace environmental studies professor Evan Pritchard has published his latest CD, a 12-track collection entitled ‘Earthdance Anthology’. Pritchard and his music were featured in the White Plains Patch.

From the article:

“Evan Pritchard’s second grade teacher asked whether he wanted to be a fireman, policeman or a doctor when he grew up—his answer: a Renaissance man.

Though the teacher told the now 56-year-old Pace University professor that this was no longer possible—he simply told her it was, and he would prove it.

“I continue to be interested in a whole lot of things and how they fit together,” said Pritchard, who has taught at both the Pleasantville and White Plains campuses.

“I knew that’s what I wanted to do—look at the whole picture.”

In addition to being a professor of Native American studies, world religion and philosophy—Pritchard, who has Mi’kmaq Native American and Celtic blood, is a musician, composer, poet, author and artist.”

The Poughkeepsie resident’s latest work—a 12-track album titled “ Earthdance Anthology,” recorded at Robert Jackson AIF Music Productions’ studio in Mamaroneck, combines all of these talents.
