This course is taught by various members of the program faculty. Each version of the course has its own subtitle, some being offered one time only while others are repeated and may evolve into regular courses with their own course number and title.

Topic Description / Additional Information

This interdisciplinary course will build an understanding and awareness of the complexities of memory loss and introduce the use of the expressive arts. Students will meet with specialists in neurology, psychiatry, public health, social work, and the arts to learn about the scientific basis of memory and dementia, the societal basis of dementia, and institutional projects to support individuals with memory impairment. Through art sessions with adults with memory loss, students will explore the potential of the arts to serve as an outlet for expression, build key life skills and learn from community members through shared experiences. Please contact Professor Anne Mondro at ammondro@umich.edu for more information.
