Wiser: The Scientific Roots of Wisdom, Compassion, and What Makes Us Good by Dilip Jeste, M.D. in conversation with Shafali Jeste, M.D.
What exactly does it mean to be "wise?" And is it possible to grow―and even accelerate―its unfolding? How do you nurture wisdom within yourself, at any stage in life?
If you seek to be a wiser person―with your family, at work, and in your community―you will not want to miss this special father-daughter Open Mind/#WOW program Wiser, presented by The Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors.
Dilip Jeste, M.D is a world-renowned neuropsychiatrist and a pioneer in the exploration of the neurobiology and psychology. For over two decades, Dr. Jeste, a Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences and Director of the Center for Healthy Aging at the University of California San Diego, has led the search for the biological and cognitive roots of wisdom. In his new critically acclaimed book Wiser: The Scientific Roots of Wisdom, Compassion and What Makes Us Good, he shows you how you can take control of your life by increasing your wisdom.
Dr. Shafali Jeste, M.D., Pediatric Neurologist and Associate Professor in Psychiatry, Pediatric, and Neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, will join her father in discussion. Dr. Jeste is the recipient of the 2019 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. Her research is focused on developing more precise methods for early prediction and diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, using biomarkers, and other genetic information, with the ultimate goal of improving the timing and targets of treatment for these conditions.
