Going Full Time

Beginning August 1, I will be working full time for Frontotemporal Disease Association. It is a Texas based non profit organization dedicated to educating healthcare professionals and raising research dollars for neurodegenerative diseases.

Our first event was in 2009, we had a table at the Mind Science Foundation meeting "Bursts of Creativity with FTD" in San Antonio. Dr. Bruce Miller from University of California in San Franscisco was there. It was a great event.

Our second official event was the premier of the documentary "Planning For Hope" in Colorado Springs with Dr. Paul Schulz and Dr. Sara Qualls as special speakers for the evening. The silent auction was a big success. Dr. Schultz purchased Patsy's SHOWGIRL on canvas for his new office.

Our third event is arranging for Dr. Schulz to participate in the Texas Society of Psychiatric Physicians annual meeting this fall.
