Internationally Recognized Schizophrenia Expert To Talk In Park City Weds., Feb.8

Dr. John M. Kane, one of the country’s preeminent researchers on the treatment of schizophrenia, will speak to area mental health professionals and interested members of the public in Park City Wednesday, February 8. We hope you will consider attending this free educational event. We would also appreciate your help spreading the word through your social media contacts to mental health service providers and lay people whose loved ones deal with the disease.

 

Dr. Kane will speak on “Early Treatment and Engagement for Psychotic Disorders.” He will discuss his research that has had a significant impact on the new ways that schizophrenia is identified and treated with evidence-based, coordinated and specialized programs. For people developing psychotic disorders, the hallucinations, communications problems, and fixed false beliefs can be confusing and frightening. At the same time, because they may not realize they are facing the onset of a psychiatric illness, they often wait weeks or months before seeking help. Dr. Kane will address the challenges faced by health professionals and the patient’s family and friends and the importance of reducing the delay in receiving early treatment to influence ultimate outcomes.

 

For over 30 years, Dr. Kane has been an international leader in the field of schizophrenia research. His findings have been circulated worldwide and have become part of the fabric of modern care. He is a pioneer in the study of first episode schizophrenia and also conducted groundbreaking work with clozapine for treatment resistant schizophrenia. He has continuously focused on both therapeutic and adverse effects of psychotropic drugs, thereby informing benefit-to-risk considerations. Dr. Kane has been in the forefront of bringing the next generation of medicines to patients in order to enhance long-term effectiveness and quality of life. 

 

Dr. Kane is Senior Vice President for Behavioral Health Services for the Northwell Health System and Professor and Chairman of Psychiatry at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. Dr. Kane has been President of the Schizophrenia International Research Society, the Psychiatric Research Society and the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology. He has chaired both the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Psychopathology and Psychobiology Review Committee and the FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee.

Dr. Kane has authored or co-authored over 400 publications in peer-reviewed journals. He is a recipient of the Arthur P. Noyes Award in Schizophrenia, the NAPPH Presidential Award for Research, the Heinz E. Lehmann Research Award from New York State, the Lieber Prize for Outstanding Research in Schizophrenia, the Dean Award from the American College of Psychiatrists, and the Gralnick Award, the Kempf Award and The Foundation Fund Prize from The American Psychiatric Association.

 

Dr. Kane’s presentation will be Wednesday, February 8, at 6:30 p.m. in the Aspen Room at The Park City Hotel. His address will be free and geared to mental health professionals but interested residents are also invited. Attendance is limited and registration is required by visiting connectsummitcounty.org.
