Dear Friends,

Thank you for participating in UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors virtual Open Mind program with Yiyun Li, author of the award-winning book Where Reasons End, and Dr. Michael Gitlin, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Mood Disorders Clinical at UCLA Semel Institute. We hope that you found their conversation meaningful and informative.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, May 25th 5PM PT when we welcome Daniel E. Lieberman, Ph.D., Harvard Professor of Evolutional Biology and author of the new best-selling and myth-busting book Exercised: Why Something We Never Evolved to Do is Healthy and Rewarding. Dr. Lieberman will be joined in conversation by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, MD, renowned author, evolutionary biologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, and cardiologist in the Division of Cardiology at UCLA.
