Discount airfare is available through American and United Airlines. There are several events that may be of special interest to StigmaBusters.
A PBS-TV documentary is being made for the American Experience series about Walter Freeman, the man who once promoted lobotomy as a treatment for mental illness. Historians and authors have written about when and where lobotomies were performed, but the producer wants to speak with people who actually experienced the procedure, or their family members, to discuss the effect on their lives. If you are interested in sharing a story, please contact the filmmaker directly at KateCWalker@yahoo.com or 718/832-5279.
