K-STATE LECTURE APRIL 20 FEATURING RETIRED PSYCHOLOGIST WHO WILL SPEAK ABOUT HIS PERSONAL STRUGGLE WITH DEMENTIA

MANHATTAN -- A dementia and Alzheimer's lecturer coming to Kansas State University will give a personal account of his life with the disease.

Richard Taylor is a retired psychologist, award-winning author and renowned speaker. He has lived with dementia -- most likely Alzheimer's disease -- for the past decade. He will present "Be With Me Today" from 10 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 20, at Forum Hall in the K-State Student Union. The event is free and open to the public.

Taylor is the author of "Alzheimer's from the Inside Out." He has found that thinking, speaking, and writing about what it is like to live with this condition has become his life's purpose. More information about Taylor is available at his Web site, http://www.richardtaylorphd.com.

The lecture is sponsored by K-State's Center on Aging, Meadowlark Hills and K-State Research and Extension.
