Event description

Description

Robert S. Laitman, M.D., and Daniel Laitman will present the 2019 Drs. Fred and Penny Frese Lecture, “Hope and Help: Meaningful Recovery from Schizophrenia and Serious Mental Illness with Clozapine."


Drs. Robert and Ann Mandel Laitman used love, determination and science to find the best treatments available to help their son, Daniel, live successfully with schizophrenia following his diagnosis of schizophrenia just before his 16th birthday. Dr. Robert Laitman, a self-described “optimistic nephrologist,” will speak about discovering a passion for helping patients with serious mental illness, and developing a regimen for the treatment of psychosis based on the optimal use of clozapine, a valuable, but frequently underutilized, medication. Daniel Laitman is showing the world what is possible – just by being himself. He will share how his schizophrenia diagnosis hasn’t stopped him from finding success as a stand-up comedian. When he is not performing in New York comedy clubs, he is advocating for mental health through his favorite charities: Team Daniel, Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America, Brain &Behavior Research Foundation and Mental Health America.
