College of Health Sciences Distinguished Lecture Series
featuring Martin J. Schreiber

A presentation by author and former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber on the topic of “Alzheimer’s Caregiving”

Since late 2016, Schreiber has crisscrossed Wisconsin and traveled to 10 other states to help families, employers and healthcare providers understand the importance of counseling and other caregiver resources — support that de-stigmatizes the disease, reduces stress and alleviates guilt.

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 | 6 – 8 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. His book, My Two Elaines, will be available for $15. Checks or cash preferred. All net proceeds benefit Alzheimer's caregiver support programs.

Martin J. Schreiber

Former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber is a nationally recognized crusader for Alzheimer’s caregivers and persons with dementia. Reaching audiences around the country at live events and through various forms of media, Marty shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver.

Marty’s book, My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, was named by caring.com as one of its Best Caregiving Books of both 2017 and 2018. Other recognitions include My Two Elaines being called the 11th Best Alzheimer’s Book of All Time by bookauthority.com and Marty being listed at #2 on the list of Senior Social Media Influencers You Should Follow by currents.greatcall.com.

Prior to writing My Two Elaines – and while still caring for his wife at home – Marty committed significant resources, both financial and personal, to help the Alzheimer’s Association launch Operation: Stronger Together in 2015. This awareness program has helped the southeastern Wisconsin chapter connect record numbers of families to education and resources that are vital to successful caregiving. This and other initiatives have led to Marty being recognized with awards from the Alzheimer’s Association and other organizations.

My Two Elaines will be released in its third print edition later this year, complemented by e-book and audiobook versions. Net proceeds are used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support.
