A DOCTORS SELF Dr. Lisa M. Shulman joins Mark to explore the effects of losing and grieving a loved one on the mind, brain, and body. Interweaving her personal story with research on the neurology of grief, Dr. Shulman sheds light on loss as an emotional traumatic brain injury.  Dr. Shulman’s new book: Before and After Loss delves into the science behind grief to dispel mystery and help those experiencing loss feel less overwhelmed, less anxious, and less alone. “Individually, the experience is unfamiliar and surreal,” Dr. Shulman acknowledges, “but there’s comfort to be found in understanding how our brain responds and heals following traumatic loss.”  LISA M. SHULMAN, MD, is a professor of neurology at the University of Maryland. She is the author or editor of numerous books on neurologic disorders, including Parkinson’s Disease: A Complete Guide for Patients and Families, now in its third edition.

“Mark Farrell is a dynamic speaker who will captivate the audience by sharing his personal story of how he was able to overcome challenges in life and worked his way to success.  We scheduled Mark for 45 minutes, but our students were so engaged in his story that Mark spoke for over 1 hour.  I still have students approach me and discuss Mark's message and say, "if he could do it, so can I”
